Accusations fly amongst the eight survivors with ex-mercenary soldier Philip Lombard admitting his guilt to Vera and religious spinster Emily Brent making excuses for her accusation. A search party is organized to hunt the killer. Owen, in vain and former General MacArthur is despairing, seeming to lose his mind - and then his life. Two more murders follow, leaving only five little soldiers on the table and it is apparent that the killer is one of the five remaining guests.
