  1. Mr. U.N. Owen was an unidentified person who was the one presumed to have invited guests by letter to come to a mysterious island off the coast of Devon. He cleverly worded the letters so that the guests would accept his invitation. At first he wasn’t suspected to be any one of them on the island, but eventually they realized it must be a guest after a complete search of the island. The way he masked his identity was unsuspecting and made everyone wonder who he was until their deaths. He was so discreet even his name was “unknown.” The way he presented himself was mysterious as he carefully “calculated” every detail of every death. He chose to make himself known in a very risky but clever way. It was risky because Justice Wargrave may have never gotten credit if the bottle was not found with his confession in it. His announcement was clever because all the murders would be done by the time it was discovered. It was fitting to confess because he wanted to go down in history like one of the other great murder mysteries he had listened to in court and always “fantasized” about. Mr. U.N. Owen created the plot because it was his “desire to act instead of to judge.” He could gain his true recognition as a brilliant murderer that linked him to his entire “art collection of victims.” He created a plot based off of the sick desires of his imagination and used his knowledge as a judge to carry out his plan.
