Abstract

Ten strangers, apparently with little in common, are invited to Soldier Island 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… And Then There Were None is Agatha Christie’s bestselling novel, with over 100 million copies sold worldwide. Join us as we discuss the book with the help of a panel experts: Dr Kate Watson on crime and mystery fiction; Dr Bernadette Rainey on the administration of justice; Prof Robert Snowden on psychopathy; Dr Dawn Mannay on class and gender.
