Mystery / 8m, 3f / Int. In this superlative mystery comedy statuettes of little soldier boys on the mantel of a house on an island off the coast of Devon fall to the floor and break one by one as those in the house succumb to a diabolical avenger. A nursery rhyme tells how each of the ten "soldiers" met his death until there were none. Eight guests who have never met each other or their apparently absent host and hostess are lured to the island and, along with the two house servants, marooned. A mysterious voice accuses each of having gotten away with murder and then one drops dead---poisoned. One down and nine to go! The excitement never lets up in this ideal play for schools, colleges and little theatres.

This book will keep you guessing until the end. Very well written and great suspense. I got chills many times in this book and read the whole thing in one night. I had trouble sleeping that night--I kept thinking about the book and every noise my house made. Read full review

I thought the book was alright. I didn't really like the beginning. If it was more attention grabbing, then I may have liked it better. All in all though, it wasn't that bad. Read full review
