Agatha Christie – “Elephants Can Remember”

A Hercule Poirot mystery. One I have read a few times and therefore knew the ending almost as soon as I started it. Since it only took an hour or so to read it this wasn’t a major problem. Agatha remains as readable as ever.

AGATHA CHRISTIE - Dame Agatha Mary Clarissa Miller, Lady Mallowan, DBE (15 September 1890 – 12 January 1976), was an English crime writer of novels, short stories and plays. She also wrote romances under the name Mary Westmacott, but is best remembered for her 80 detective novels and her successful West End theatre plays. Her works, particularly featuring detectives Hercule Poirot or Miss Jane Marple, have given her the title the 'Queen of Crime' and made her one of the most important and innovative writers in the development of the genre is known throughout the world as the Queen of Crime. Her books have sold over a billion copies in English with another billion in 44 foreign languages. She is the most widely published author of all time and in any language, outsold only by the Bible and Shakespeare.
