Eight guests, and two house-servants, who have never met each other, or their apparently absent host, are lured to a house on an island off the coast of Devon, England. Soon upon arrival, a mysterious voice accuses each of having gotten away with murder and then suddenly one drops dead...poisoned. One down and nine to go!
