And Then There Were None is a murder mystery. Even though nothing is too detailed, there are multiple deaths in the chapters and deaths alluded to in the characters past. Suicide is also mentioned in the book, but the deaths not fully detailed.
The book was also written in 1939 and may have outdated views about race or gender. Your child is less likely to read these if they have a newer copy of the book. I don't focus on these in the class, but they are in the book.
