And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie
First, there were ten—a curious assortment of strangers summoned as weekend guests to a little 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. A famous nursery rhyme is framed and hung in every room of the mansion.
When they realize that murders are occurring as described in the rhyme, terror mounts. One by one they fall prey. Before the weekend is out, there will be none. Who has choreographed this dastardly scheme? And who will be left to tell the tale? Only the dead are above suspicion.
Cold and dark autumn evenings are perfect for a good murder mystery! There are lots of good mysteries available in the library but the cover of this classic Agatha Christie always seems to draw students in. For the grown ups I can recommend C.L Taylors books, I have just finished Sleep, another good mystery/thriller.
