Chapter 11 Summary

Lombard wakes up later than usual and realizes that no one has called him for breakfast. He quickly concludes that Mr. Rogers has gone missing. Lombard gathers the party together to inform them of Mr. Rogers’s disappearance. Blore and Justice Wargrave must be roused from sleep, Dr. Armstrong and Vera are already up and dressed, and Emily Brent’s room is empty. Eventually Emily Brent enters the house wearing a mackintosh and informs them she was out taking a walk along the island by herself. Blore finds this suspicious.

In the dining room, Justice Wargrave notices that Mr. Rogers laid the table for breakfast. Vera notices with a panic that now there are only six china figures on the table.

The group finds Mr. Rogers shortly after in the washhouse where he was chopping sticks for the kitchen fire. He is dead, having been hit in the head with an axe. Vera bursts into a fit of unhinged laughter and asks if there are any bees on the island. The group looks at her, confused by her sudden bout of hysteria, and she points out that the murders are mimicking the nursery
