Summary
Ten people find themselves stranded in the lonely house on Indian Island when their supposed hosts send word that they have been detained. A mysterious voice, afterwards discovered to come from a gramophone record, indicts each on of them -- the eight guests and the two servants -- of murder. It transpires that no-one has met their hosts and that they have evidently been decoyed to the island. First one and then another dies; each death according to the rhyme of "Ten little Indians," and with each death one of the little china figurines on the mantelpiece is found broken. The tension grows as they realize that the killer is, in fact, one of themselves. Eventually only two little Indians are left; the real killer appears (his death having been feigned) and the remaining two are able to outwit him--Publisher's description

Summary
Ten houseguests, trapped on an isolated island, are the prey of a diabolical killer. A famous nursery rhyme is framed and hung in every room of the mansion: Ten little Indian boys went out to dine; One choked his little self and then there were nine--When they realize that murders are occurring as described in the rhyme, terror mounts. Who has choreographed this dastardly scheme? And who will be left to tell the tale?
