From Agatha Christie comes “And The There Were None.” Ten people who have previously been involved in the deaths of others but have escaped notice or punishment are invited to a secluded mansion on an island. Even though these ten guests are the only people on the island, they are all mysteriously murdered, one by one, in a manner paralleling the old nursery rhyme, “Ten Little Sailors.”
