Ten strangers, apparently with little in common, are lured to an island mansion off the coast of Devon by the mysterious U.N. Owen. Over dinner, a record begins to play, and the voice of an unseen host accuses each person of hiding a guilty secret. That evening, former reckless driver Tony Marston is found murdered by a deadly dose of cyanide. The tension escalates as the survivors realise the killer is not only among them but is preparing to strike again...and again.More

"Creepy" Christie. Brilliant !

The story is first rate and Hugh Frasers narration is top class
His wonderful array of voices that brought the characters off the page, I cant praise him enough for this work
I first read this 20 years ago and several times since; this audio version adds so much to the story due to the fantastic narration. Well done Hugh Fraser
