And Then There Were None, by Agatha Christie

This cozy yet chilling whodunit brings a cast of eccentric characters from all walks of British life—the quiet, dignified butler, the governess with a sinister secret, the corrupt police inspector—together to an isolated mansion where they have been invited for a mysterious purpose by a shadowy stranger: And that’s when the fun begins. And by “fun” I of course mean, “they start getting killed off, one by one, in terrifying ways.” Widely recognized as one of Christie’s best, this classic page-turner mystery with a delightful British flair is filled with intrigue, nonstop suspense, and the kinds of colorful personalities Downton fans will love.
