Summary

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".

Capitol!

Awesome story, first class narration, characters beautifully described and performed. Love High Fraser- the very finest Agatha Christie narrator.

I listened with my husband and 12 year old son (and dog- story has dog interest too) we all were held by the story until the exciting end!

Just amazing!

Enjoyable listen

I enjoyed listening to this typical Christie plot with twists and turns galore. It focuses quite a bit on Ariadne Oliver before Poirot gets involved but is well read by Hugh Frazer

Not Christie's best work

If you could sum up Elephants Can Remember in three words, what would they be?

Classic Christie mystery

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

It might be because I've read so many of Christie's mysteries before but I found this story slightly predictable.
