Grizzled American private detective in England investigates a complicated case of blackmail turned murder involving a rich but honest elderly general, his two loose socialite daughters, a pornographer and a gangster.
A group is invited, under false pretenses, to an isolated hotel in the Iranian desert. After dinner, a cassette tape accuses them all of crimes that they have gotten away with. One by one they begin to die, in accordance to the Ten Little Indians nursery rhyme. After a search is made of the hotel, they realize that the murderer is one of them. A few members of the group attempt to trust each other, but the question still remains, who can one trust? And who will leave the hotel alive?Written by

Large parts of the dialogue are lifted, whole and entire, from the original version - but not all of them. In the original, Blore advises Vera to go to her room and stay there, then later scolds her for not doing so. In this version, the second half of their exchange is repeated - but the first half isn't. So when Blore yells, "Ms. Clyde! I told you to stay in your room!", he is referencing a conversation that didn't happen. See more »
Well I don't know about the rest of you, but that tape didn't say any lies about me. I was coming home from a party. Late. Drunk. And I was driving fast. FAST. Two people in the road ahead. I ran over them. William and Louisa Stern. Two years married. Very sad.
Judge Arthur Cannon:
Were you not charged?
I had a little influence. As you know, that can help. But they punished me. They took my driving license away.

After reading some of the other reviews here, I was not expecting much. So, I was very pleasantly surprised to find that this whodunit kept me glued to my seat and guessing the whole way through. It had the right air about it of hidden danger and bewilderment. Taking it as a period piece; I think it's very fair to say that all of the performers gave credible performances, and I especially enjoyed Oliver Reed's portrayal of the sexy and debonair Hugh Lombard.
