SPOILER ALERT (QUITE OBVIOUSLY) Justice Wargrave planned the murders of all those people. We learn in the epilogue that he always felt the need to kill someone, but as a judge he felt it was only right if he killed people who were guilty of murder.   And Then There Were None is the signature novel of Agatha Christie, the most popular work of the world's bestselling novelist. It is a masterpiece of mystery and suspense that has been a fixture in popular literature since it was originally published in First there were ten-a curious assortment of strangers summoned to a private island off the coast of Devon.4/5(K).

LitCharts assigns a color and icon to each theme in And Then There Were None, which you can use to track the themes throughout the work. Justice Wargrave reads the paper on a first class train and starts thinking about his destination: Soldier Island. He remembers the gossip that an American millionaire had lived there but that it was then. The title of And Then There Were None is pretty straightforward: it’s the last line of the nursery rhyme that Wargrave uses as a handbook for his crime. One little soldier boy left all alone; He went and hanged himself And then there were None. First of all, the rhyme is super creepy, and that’s even before we get to the final (and we mean final) line.

  A red herring swallowed one and then there were three. Three little Soldier boys walking in the zoo; A big bear hugged one and then there were two. Two little Soldier boys playing with a gun; One shot the other and then there was One. One little Soldier boy left all alone; He went out and hanged himself and then there were none. THE WINTER SOLDIER spans years, which obviously doesn’t leave time for every change of underwear, and so his authorial choices are understandable, if not preferable. If Jane Austen-level description is your cup of tea, though, then sit right down, because you’re in for a treat.
