Description:

Here, then, are gathered ten people for a week-end in a Connecticut country house. They are all smart, wealthy, sophisticated, undisciplined. For the most part, they consider themselves above and beyond the codes and restraints which govern society.

When death appeared in their elaborately staged murder game, because none of them sought for any further scandal to attach to their names, it seemed expedient for them to attempt to solve the case themselves and pick the murderer from their midst. As the night wore on, each took turns writing his or her version of events as they occurred. Telling the tale of one horror-ridden night when all things were suspicious and the corpse of beautiful Mary Ashton lay in silent accusation.—Introduction. [Suggest a different description.]
