They All Fall Down

Book: They All Fall Down
Author: Rachel Howzell Hall

Delighted by a surprise invitation, Miriam Macy sails off to a luxurious private island off the coast of Mexico, with six strangers—an ex-cop, a chef, a financial advisor, a nurse, a lawyer, a young widow.

Surrounded by miles of open water in the gloriously green Sea of Cortez, Miriam is shocked to discover that she and the rest of her companions have been brought to the remote island under false pretenses—and all seven strangers harbor a secret.

Danger lurks in the lush forest and in the halls and bedrooms of the lonely mansion. Sporadic cell-phone coverage and miles of ocean keeps the group trapped in paradise. And strange accidents keep them suspicious of each other, as one by one . . .-Goodreads

Review: This is a very loose re-telling of 'And Then There Were None' by Agatha Christie. Several Americans travel to an isolated island in Mexico under various pretenses but find out they are really there because their attorney has passed away and wants them there for a memorial service. 

This was a disappointing read. Unlikable characters and a plot that was not even close to one Christie weaved in her tale. I wouldn't recommend this. 

Grade: 2/5
