Crime novelist Ariadne Oliver again turns to Hercule Poirot, this time to solve a case the police consider closed. Oliver’s interest in the murder-suicide of General and Lady Ravenscroft is more than academic: Celia Ravenscroft is her goddaughter. This is one of Poirot's most daunting cases – even he begins to doubt he can solve it – since the investigation relies on memories from years earlier.

Hercule Poirot stood on the clifftop. Here, many years earlier, there had been a fatal accident. This was followed by the grisly discovery of two bodies—a husband and wife who had been shot dead.
But who had killed whom? Was it a suicide pact? A crime of passion? Or cold-blooded murder? Poirot delves into the past and discovers that “old sins leave long shadows.”About the Author:
