Excerpt: And Then There Were None is a detective fiction novel by Agatha Christie, first published in the United Kingdom by the Collins Crime Club on 6 November 1939 under the title Ten Little Niggers which was changed by Dodd, Mead and Company in January 1940 because of the presence of a racial epithet to the title And Then There Were None. In the novel, ten people, who have previously been complicit in the deaths of others but have escaped notice or punishment, are tricked into coming onto an island. Even though the guests are the only people on the island, they are all mysteriously murdered one by one, in a manner paralleling, inexorably and sometimes grotesquely, the old nursery rhyme, "Ten Little Niggers." The UK edition retailed at seven shillings and sixpence (7 6) and the US edition at $2.00. The novel has also been published and filmed under the title Ten Little Indians. It is Christie's best-selling novel with 100 million sales to date, making it the world's best-selling mystery ever, and one of the best-selling books of all time (Publications International lists it as 7th best-selling). It has been adapted into several plays, films, and a video game. Justice Wargrave, Vera Claythorne, Philip Lombard, General Macarthur, Emily Brent, Anthony Marston, Doctor Armstrong and William Blore have been invited to a...

Noch immer plagen Dexter Morgan, Spezialist für Blutanalysen bei der Polizei von Miami, Gelüste, es den schlimmsten Serienkillern mit gleicher Münze heimzuzahlen. Da trifft es sich gut, dass Miami gerade von einer neuen Mordserie erschüttert wird. Gefunden werden die verkohlten Leichen zweier junger Frauen, deren Köpfe verschwunden und durch getöpferte Stierschädel ersetzt worden sind. Als Dexter am Tatort eintrifft, erschrickt der »Dunkle Passagier«, sein rachdurstiges Alter Ego, allerdings zu Tode – und macht sich spurlos davon. Dexter ist vollkommen ratlos. Was soll er ohne seinen geheimen Einflüsterer nur machen?

Jack the Ripper is back Der Tag von Rorys Ankunft im altehrwürdigen Internat Wexford ist gleichzeitig der Tag, an dem eine Mordserie beginnt, die ganz London in Atem hält. Jack the Ripper ist zurück, oder vielmehr jemand, der exakt die Taten des Serienmörders kopiert. Unter den Augen der an den Bildschirmen mitzitternden Londoner Bevölkerung tötet der Ripper trotz Überwachungskameras und observierenden Hubschraubern weiter – und lässt die Polizei alt aussehen, so ganz ohne Zeugen. Was keiner weiß: Eine einzige Zeugin gibt es – Rory. Die junge Amerikanerin ist die Einzige, die den Mörder gesehen hat. Womöglich auch die Einzige, die ihn sehen kann? Und plötzlich ist der Ripper hinter Rory her ...

IN THE CORNER of a first-class smoking carriage, Mr. Justice Wargrave, lately retired from the bench, puffed at a cigar and ran an interested eye through the political news in the Times. He laid the paper down and glanced out of the window. They were running now through Somerset. He glanced at his watch-another two hours to go. He went over in his mind all that had appeared in the papers about Indian Island. There had been its original purchase by an American millionaire who was crazy about yachting-and an account of the luxurious modern house he had built on this little island off the Devon coast. The unfortunate fact that the new third wife of the American millionaire was a bad sailor had led to the subsequent putting up of the house and island for sale.

Indian Island had really been bought by Miss Gabrielle Turl, the Hollywood film star! She wanted to spend some months there free from all publicity! Busy Bee had hinted delicately that
