  • 《外围博彩平台》——阿加莎·克里斯蒂

    第一个, t在这里 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 now在这里 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. 因为每个人都被标记为杀人犯. 府邸的每个房间里都挂着一首著名的童谣:

    "Ten little boys went out to dine; One choked his little self and then t在这里 were nine. Nine little boys sat up very late; One overslept himself and then t在这里 were eight. Eight little boys traveling in Devon; One said he'd stay t在这里 then t在这里 were seven. Seven little boys chopping up sticks; One chopped himself in half and then t在这里 were six. Six little boys playing with a hive; A bumblebee stung one and then t在这里 were five. Five little boys going in for law; One got in Chancery and then t在这里 were four. Four little boys going out to sea; A red herring swallowed one and then t在这里 were three. Three little boys walking in the zoo; A big bear hugged one and then t在这里 were two. Two little boys sitting in the sun; One got frizzled up and then t在这里 was one. One little boy left all alone; He went out and hanged himself and then t在这里 were none."

    When they realize that murders are occurring as described in the rhyme, terror mounts. 他们一个接一个地成为猎物. 在周末结束之前,就没有了. 谁策划了这个卑鄙的阴谋? 谁会留下来讲述这个故事? 只有死人是不容怀疑的.
