Thriller Thursday

It’s Thriller Thursday, yay! I did a lot of searching for thrillers and kept coming back to Agatha Christie. You just can’t beat a Christie novel. She was a genius. She wrote 33 novels and 53 short stories. I have to give it to the woman, she wrote her novels on a typewriter. What a pain! No backspacing or deleting. As an author in the 21st century, I have it made. Computers are wonderful.
Of the characters that Christie came up with, Miss Marple is my favorite. She had wit and style. Hercule Pariot was wonderful, too, but Miss Marple was a cute, old lady, with a brain for figuring out murders.
Today, I’m featuring Christie’s novel, And Then There Were None; a masterful thriller, that Dame Christie, herself, said was a masterpiece. And they made it into a movie, which is awesome!
Here is the plot of the story: 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.
It sounds thrilling, doesn’t it? It sales for $6.99 for Kindle, but she’s worth it. Or, you can buy it on paperback for $10.33.
