I'm doing a reading challenge. It's called Vintage Mystery Bingo.
It's being hosted by Bev over at My Reader's Block. I'm doing the Silver Mystery Bingo. My first book is "Read One Book with an Animal in the Title". I am going to try and do this with my Agatha Christie collection. We'll see, I may have to switch off authors.
Elephants Can Remember - Agatha Christie
"The Ravenscrofts didn't seem that kind of person. They seemed well
balanced and placid..." And yet, twelve years earlier, the husband had
shot the wife, and then himself-or perhaps it was the other way around,
since sets of both of their fingerprints were on the gun, and the gun
had fallen between them. The case haunts Ariadne Oliver, who had been a
friend of the couple. The famous mystery novelist desires this real-life
mystery solved, and calls upon Hercule Poirot to help her do so. Poirot
is now a very old man, but his mind is as nimble and as sharp as ever
and can still penetrate deep into the shadows. But as Poirot and Mrs.
Oliver and Superintendent Spence reopen the long-closed case, a
startling discovery awaits them. And if memory serves Poirot (and it
does!), crime-like history-has a tendency to repeat itself.
I really liked this book! Classic Agatha Christie writing. She sets up the story and then leads you along with all the clues. I didn't get the clue I needed to solve the mystery until almost at the end of the book. I can't really tell too much with out giving the ending away. So I'll just say if you like reading classic mysteries, this is the book for you.
