Standalone Sunday is a weekly book-tag created by Megan at Bookslayer Reads which aims to promote standalone books which you loved or would recommend.
First, there were ten – a curious assortment of strangers summoned as weekend guests to a private island off the coast of Devon. Their host, an eccentric millionaire unknown to all of them, is nowhere to be found. All that the guests have in common is a wicked past they’re unwilling to reveal – and a secret that will seal their fate. For each has been marked for murder. One by one they fall prey. Before the weekend is out, there will be none. And only the dead are above suspicion.
I wanted to read this initially because one of my favourite films – Devil – was loosely based on it. It was the first Agatha Christie book I’d ever read and I loved it. I’m a fool for murder mysteries, especially ones that take place among a small group of people. The excitement of trying to figure out who was the culprit and the shock of the reveal made this book a very enjoyable read. I highly recommend it.
