Storyboard Text

  • Exposition
  • Rising Action
  • He is dead
  • Climax
  • At the very beginning of the book, ten strangers are on their way to a fantastic place called Soldier Island, which doesn’t sound quite as nice as, say, Baja, but hey! Islands are cool.
  • Falling Action
  • Everyone is pretty freaked out, natch, especially when they realize that the voice is coming from a prerecorded gramophone record. But it’s about to get a lot creepier. Soon afterwards, Anthony Marston takes a drink and falls down dead. And the next morning, Mrs. Rogers doesn’t wake up on time—or at all. Something very peculiar (and dangerous) is afoot on Soldier Island
  • Resolution
  • One death is weird, two is suspicious, but three? Now we’re talking serial killer. And when General Macarthur is bludgeoned to death from behind, just like the creepy nursery rhyme predicts, it’s clear that someone is very cleverly killing the guests off one by one. So who is it? After a thorough—and fruitless—search of the island, the remaining guests conclude that …. one of them is the killer. Aiiiiiiiiiiiiii!
  • As the novel toodles along toward its conclusion, people just keep dying. Mrs. Brent is “stung” by a hypodermic needle, Justice Wargrave is shot while wearing a judge’s robes, Dr. Armstrong drowns in the ocean, Blore is “hugged” by a bear (or rather hit with a bear-shaped clock), Lombard is shot by Vera, and Vera hangs herself just like the last little soldier boy does in the poem.
  • After a bunch of more fruitless investigation, a literal message in a bottle washes ashore. And guess who the killer is? None other than man of law Justice Wargrave, who takes his commitment to justice a little too seriouslydit Description
