  • They are invited to the isolated island by a figure of mystery, Mr Owen.
    They have apparently no relation with each other.
    At the first dinner, suddenly a voice come from somewhere and it reveals their crimes.
    And then, they are killed one by one with following ”Soldier Boys", which is a folk song.

    At first, I thought it is hard to understand the story in English, because there were so many characters.
    However, while continuing to read it, I felt down to the story. The climax was so thrilling.

    As a matter of fact, "the unexpected guest" is better than this "And then there were none".
    That is because the former didn't make me expect the criminals at all, but I was totally convicted by its hints.
