About this deal

The setting of an isolated island, the bottle with a message, few suspects and the great design/plan by the murderer revealed at the beginning are just some of the more obvious similarities. If you would like to change your settings or withdraw consent at any time, the link to do so is in our privacy policy accessible from our home page. The late actor was best known for Friends but brought his signature wit to plenty of characters not named Chandler.

Borrowing its basic plot structure from Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None (Christie's book is directly referenced by some of the characters at several points), it tells the story of a group of seven university students who travel to a deserted island that was the scene of a grisly mass murder six months earlier, where events soon turn ominous.

Now, they are meant to be crime fiction experts, and yet do not really implement any actual knowledge of this genre.

Although anime and manga fans are more likely to know him as the author behind the horror story Another, The Decagon House Murders is probably the literary work Yukito Ayatsuji is best known for. At the same time that the club members have found themselves in danger of becoming yet more murder victims, ex-members of the club unearth a whole new layer to the mystery.Meanwhile, Ursula Lopez, an amateur criminal and unhappy overeater who is looking for the cost of a quick-fix slimming treatment after her attempts to muscle in on Diego’s kidnapping have ended in failure, is waiting in the wings. Sometimes, that's because we genuinely don't know something genetic about our bodies, as happened to crea.
