Book "Elephants Can Remember" by Agatha Christie, Dodd Mead & Company, copyright 1972.
Very minor wear, super clean pages.
An elderly lady writer of detective stories, Mrs. Oliver, with a marvelously directionless and unexpected turn of mind, and the presence, Hercule Poirot, collaborate independently to find out why many years ago the mother and father of Mrs. Olivers goddaughter ended their lives in a suicide-murder or a double suicide. It is not the most substantial case Hercule has had to contend with but one reads it with predisposed pleasure and certainly this audience will fred it ever so nice — ever and ever so nice. - Kirkus
Hercule Poirot stood on the cliff-top. For here, many years earlier, there had been a tragic accident – the broken body of a woman was discovered on the rocks at the foot of the cliff. This was followed by the grisly discovery of two more bodies – a husband and wife – shot dead. But who had killed whom? Was it a suicide pact? A crime of passion? Or cold-blooded murder? Poirot delves back into a crime committed 15 years earlier and discovers that, when there is a distinct lack of physical evidence, it’s just as well that ‘old sins leave long shadows.
This story is part of Agatha Christie’s murder in retrospect series, a collection of stories which look at a crime several years after the fact, piecing together testimonials and witness reports to finally uncover the truth. This time we see Mrs Oliver’s goddaughter, attempting to find out the truth about her deceased parents – who killed whom? - Goodreads
