Mrs. Packington felt alone, helpless and utterly forlorn. But her life changed when she stumbled upon an advertisement in the Times that read: "Are you happy? If not, consult Mr. Parker Pyne." Equally adept at putting together the fragments of a murder mystery or the pieces of a broken marriage, Mr. Parker Pyne is possibly the world's most unconventional private investigator. Armed with just his intuitive knowledge of human nature, he is an Englishman abroad, traveling the globe to solve and undo crime and misdemeanor.

Love it. I haven’t even finished it, only read the first two of the book’s 12 stories, but I know the rest will be just as delightful. Not surprising, really. The back blurb states that there are two billion copies of Christie’s books in print, and that was written in 1984. Obviously, I’m not the on...

I've read plenty of Agatha Christie's work, and I have to say that this is quite different from anything else of hers I've read. Instead of being a single mystery, or a set of four medium-length whodunits, "Parker Pyne Investigates" is a collection of approximately seven or eight mini-mysteries, st...
