Mrs. Packington felt alone, helpless, and utterly forlorn. But her life changed when she stumbled upon an advertisement in The Times reading "Are you happy? If not, consult Mr. Parker Pyne." Equally adept at putting together the pieces of a marriage or the fragments of a murder mystery, Parker Pyne is possibly the world's most unconventional private eye--and certainly its most charming.

“Are you happy? If not, consult Mr. Parker Pyne.”
14 fun and clever short stories. Some murder but mostly Mr. Parker Pyne almost tricking clients into finding their happiness.

Short stories. Poor Parker can never go on vacation. What an interesting profession he has. Sometimes clever, sometimes not but I suspect the latter is because Christie has been copied so many times that the novelty of her ideas has worn off. Still there is no beating Christie's writing. She can tell a good story.

Parker Pyne: It's the wish to kill that counts--the mere instrument doesn't matter. Something can always be found.
