Following an otherwise-enjoyable literary luncheon, the celebrated crime novelist Ariadne Oliver is accosted by a particularly formidable woman who engages her in conversation about one of her many god-daughters, whom Ariadne hasn't seen since she was a child. She lands a bombshell with the question 'What I want to know is this: did her mother kill her father, or was it the father who killed the mother?'

Affronted and bewildered by the assertiveness of this pushy busybody, Ariadne is nevertheless intrigued. There's only one thing for it. She must contact her old friend Hercule Poirot. Together they set about unravelling the mystery of a tragedy from the distant past - provoked in equal measure by hate and love.

As always, John Moffatt stars as Hercule Poirot, while Julia McKenzie stars as Ariadne Oliver - whom Agatha Christie based on herself.

Listener Opinions

    " Seperti karya Agatha Christie yang lain yang memang keren. Cerita ini lebih berkisar soal 'ketidak-sengajaan' Ms. Oliver dalam menemukan poin-poin penting dalam pemecahan kasus. Salah satu novel Agatha Christie, yang membuat aku ngerasa Monsiur Poirot cocok dan serasi ama Ms. Oliver. Benar ga? "

    " Read this in Egypt. Enjoyed it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Petra Willemse | 2/13/2014

    " I know that towards the end of her career Christie got tired of her main character (Poirot) and started to diversify as much as possible. However, I still don't like Ariadne Oliver and I never understood why Christie preferred her to Poirot. Ariadne gets the most words in this novel and Poirot is relegated to a sidekick. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Guera | 1/30/2014

    " Another charming story. It started off slow with lots of repitition of already known facts but picked up speed toward the middle and ended with an interesting twist. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lynn | 1/28/2014

    " Particularly pointless Poirot mystery. I believe the story could have worked, even though it includes an evil twin. But the characters and events of the investigation were very sloppy and unconvincing. I've got to stop reading just anything by Agatha Christie. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vickie | 1/18/2014

    " Takes a while to get used to her style, but it grows on you. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Caroline | 1/15/2014

    " In this book I knew part of the ending, but not the whole thing. I dont know how Hercule Poirot figured it out. Other than the fact that he's not real. I loved the last sentence. "Elephants can remember, but luckily we are humans, who can forget." That isn't word for word the right thing, but it was along those lines. It was a cute way to end it. This book was like a fairy tale in that everything worked out splendidly in the end. The "evil" plan was foiled, they found love, the truth was discovered. This wasn't my favorite Agatha Christie, but it was a good one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy | 1/15/2014

    " She will always be my favorite author. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 KatieSuzanne | 1/14/2014

    " My first Agatha Christie book and it was pretty dumb. I'll have to give her another chance with another book. It just made me realize how much better crime mysteries have become over the years. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 February Four | 1/8/2014

    " I'm not really a fan of Adriane Oliver, but she and Poirot work very well together, for all that. Gallant Poirot and fussy Mrs Oliver do make a rather interesting team. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mygoodreads | 1/3/2014

    " Nothing much to say here. Just an enjoyable holiday read. "

    " Two stars because I don't remember the details. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Antonia Ivanova | 8/6/2013

    " Almost predictable, shallow and too melodramatic. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amita | 6/25/2013

    " agatha revealed the secret like a bomb almost at the end... amazing and spell bounding.. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Bharat Kumar | 2/7/2013

    " Well....to say one thing ..She was damn obsessed with those elephants (I donno why it was that necessary). The plot was not good and she kept on bragging about unnecessary things...more than 3 quarters of the book did not mean anything to the plot or me :P. A disappointing work by Agatha !! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kit Dunsmore | 8/12/2012

    " Agatha is not up to par on this one. Even with Poirot and Ariadne Oliver to entertain me, I was less than entranced. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Hayley Aldrich | 3/13/2012

    " This was probably my least favourite Christie read of recent times, though that being said I still enjoyed it. Some parts however were too repetitive and dragged, which I found unusual for a Christie novel. However, loved reading about Ariadne Oliver again! She's one of my favourites! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Doc & Charly | 2/22/2012

    " I read this book in Spanish, Los Elefantes Pueden Recordar. Hercule solves old mystery of a seeming double suicide. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Okcomputergirl13 | 1/20/2012

    " Great book but, unlike her other novels, I was able to figure out most of the ending "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angela Wika Kusuma | 12/21/2011

    " my favorite words here, "dalam kematian mereka tak terpisahkan" "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aud | 9/5/2011

    " I don't think I'm a fan of agatha Christie's writing style... I just can't seem to get into her stories "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Contrarywise | 6/30/2011

    " As a fan of the author, I am sorry to say that I couldn't even get through half of this one. In one word, feeble. Christie should have stopped before she wrote it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vickie | 4/17/2011

    " Takes a while to get used to her style, but it grows on you. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 neverbereplaced | 3/31/2011

    " not the best book of Christie. when the story of wigs and dog bites are mentioned well i guess the 'wife' isn't the wife at all.
    not very surprising, in my opinion. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Meidhita | 3/22/2011

    " interesting title. Elephants can remember. However, the plot is too easy to be guessed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tamara | 3/13/2011

    " Agatha Christie is one of my favorite authors. This book did not disappoint! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 2/9/2011

    " Very entertaining hercule book. Easy to follow and nice plot a tad predictable but good still "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rainey | 1/12/2011

    " Read this a few years ago. A little stunted, as far as Christie's works usually go. "
