    Hello all~

    So, I've recently started reading more books, and have been really focusing on Agatha Christie in particular. I've been enjoying them quite a bit, but I'm really looking for a few more stories like "And Then There Were None".

    The problem is, I don't even know how to ask for stories that are similar to a search engine. ^^;;

    Basically, I like the closed circle, the limited number of characters, the murders (obviously) and the puzzle to try and figure out which of the characters is (or are) the murder.

    If people know the visual novel "umineko no naku koro ni", that's another example of the type of story I'd really like to find more examples of.

    Thank you very much for any help!

    Have you tried Sherlock Holmes stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle?

    Ah, that's what they meant by "closed circle"! I thought maybe something where the storyline ended in that book, as opposed to being carried over to other books in the series. Makes sense now.

    A Maze of Death by Philip K. Dick - this book is very much in the same style as And Then There Were None but with the usual religio/philisophio elements that Dick is known for mixed in and there is a surprise ending as well.
