Originally it was published under the title “Ten Little Niggers” on November 6th, 1939 in the United Kingdom with a US edition a year later with a change in the title for “And Then There Were None”. Both titles are related to the British blackface song whose title was selected for the UK version and the last five words of the song were chosen for the USA edition.
The story takes place on a small isolated island off the Devon Coast in England, and it starts with the arrival of eight people with invitations with a specific reason for each one. They were received by the butler and cook of the house in the island, but their hosts are not able to welcome them since they are not in there for the moment.
Every guest has a framed copy of the song “Ten Little Niggers” (in later editions it was changed to “Ten Little Indians” or “Ten Little Soldiers”) in their rooms and ten figurines sitting at a dining table. The song is played after dinner describing every guest accusing them of having committed murder without receiving the proper sentence, and then the recording asks if any of the accused wants to defend from the charges. All but three of them deny the accusations and after that one by one are found dead in the mysterious environment.

It has received praise from the very first time of its appearance and it is considered the best novel of the author and a fan favorite.
Perhaps the old writing style, with all the careful detailed at the very beginning of describing each one of the character would be kind of boring for the modern reader; but once the first chapters are passed, the reading turn interesting and catching and it is impossible to let it go.
