“What I want to know is this: did her mother kill her father, or was it the father who killed the mother?”
This shocking question from a woman at a literary luncheon regarding the parents of her god-daughter becomes the elephant in the room for Agatha Christie’s semi-autobiographical character, Ariadne Oliver. The fictional crime novelist is perplexed by the mystery and before long she has called up her old friend, Hercule Poirot, to help uncover what really happened to the parents of Celia Ravenscroft - whose bullet-riddled bodies were found dead alongside each other, with no evidence to suggest who killed whom.
Delving deep into the past, the curious pair manage to uncover a horde of intriguing and perplexing evidence - but will it bring them any closer to solving the increasingly peculiar puzzle? And will the old ‘elephants’ they call into question help to shed any light on an extraordinary series of events that led to the deaths of the two Ravencrofts?
This BBC dramatisation of ‘Elephants Can Remember’ is a thrilling revamp of Agatha Christie’s classic detective story, and this audiobook presentation brings one of Christie’s best stories to vivid life. Starring John Moffatt as the nation’s favourite moustached detective, Hercule Poirot, alongside Julia McKenzie as Ariadne Oliver, this adaptation is now yours to own on CD or MP3 audiobook.
