Stranded by a violent storm, and haunted by a nursery rhyme counting down one by one . . . one by one they begin to die.
“Seven . . .”
Who among them is the killer and will any of them survive?
In this classic thriller novel, we follow ten people—who each have dark secrets—who were invited to spend a week in a mansion on a remote island called Soldier Island. They were gathered there by a mysterious U.N. Owen.
When they first arrived at the island, they were absolutely enjoying themselves and the company that they have until someone ends up dead by dinnertime. Throughout the book, we follow these people as they figure out and try to unravel who U.N. Owens is, why he invited them in the island, and what really is going on.
This is our book club pick for the first half of September and also my first Agatha Christie novel and I absolutely loved it—it’s instantly a new favorite. I was actually hesitant to pick up her books before for fear that I wouldn’t like it despite the popularity and I’m glad it turned out the other way around! I will definitely read more of her works.
