Ten strangers are summoned to a remote island. All the guests have in common is a wicked past they're unwilling to reveal and a secret that will seal their fate, for each has been marked for murder. As the weather turns and the group is cut off from the mainland, the reckoning begins in accordance with the lines of a sinister nursery rhyme. Based on the best-selling mystery novel of all time, this darkly captivating thriller will leave you breathless and at the edge of your seat.
