Elephants Can Remember by Agatha Christie

First sentence:

"Mrs. Oliver looked at herself in the glass."


"Hercule Poirot stood on the cliff overlooking the rocks below and the sea breaking against them. Here, where he stood, the bodies of a husband and wife had been found. Here, three weeks before that, a woman had walked in her sleep and fallen to her death.

Why had these things happened. . .?" -- from the back cover

My thoughts:

While the mystery itself was predictable, I liked the interactions between Hercule Poirot and the mystery writer Ariadne Oliver as they hunt for "elephants" for help in solving the mystery of the Ravenscrofts' deaths.
