Parker Pyne Investigates. He was large, not to say fat; he had a bald head of noble proportions, strong glasses, and little twinkling eyes. Pray sit down,’ said Mr Parker Pyne. You have come in answer to my advertisement?’ he added helpfully. Yes,’ said Mrs Packington, and stopped there. And you are not happy,’ said Mr Parker Pyne in a cheerful, matter-of-fact voice. Very few people are. You would really be surprised if you knew how few people are happy.

After reading two of Agatha Christie's short stories featuring the very unconventional private investigator, Parker Pyne, I knew I had to read more, so when I came across this collection, I grabbed it.

Pyne relies upon his thirty-five years in a government office compiling statistics to help him solve any case that's presented to him. Some of the short stories revolve around people who respond to his advertisement in The Times, but Pyne also travels to more exotic climes, such as Jordan, Syria, and Iran and finds himself solving puzzles in those countries as well.

When it comes to solving mysteries relying solely upon his observations of human nature, he has only one equal: Miss Marple herself, although the elderly lady never managed to get paid for all her troubles and Pyne does.

The stories see appearances by two characters seen elsewhere in Christie's fiction: the novelist Ariadne Oliver and Miss Lemon the secretary. (Now I'm curious as to whether Lemon worked for Pyne first before moving on to Hercule Poirot or vice versa.) When in London, Pyne helps those responding to his ad, and I love seeing how he puts his solutions together using a select few actors and other specialists whom he knows. When he's faced with mysteries while traveling abroad, they are more normal investigations. (Naturally, since the people he employs are not traveling with him.)

With the exception of twice when Christie's racism was clearly shown, I found this collection of stories to be delightful, and I'm certainly glad that I've persisted in sampling writing from the Golden Age of Mysteries.

This one is a fun aside for Agatha Christie. Her "detective" was once a Clerk in an office where he learned about people - what they wanted in life. So he put an ad in about "Are you happy?" He then decides what will help them. Its a fun read because people are interesting.

Fun little short stories that I can enjoy when I have a few minutes. Parker Payne, rather than investigating murders on every corner, is in the business to help people find some happiness in life. I've probably read too many murder mysteries so I find these little shorts refreshing. As they are short stories, there are holes in some of them. If you are one to quibble about such things, then this book is probably not something you would enjoy. I just wanted a quick, casual, pleasant read and was not disappointed.

Agatha delivers....I was looking for some short stories to read while waiting for others at the doctor's office etc. These were just right and of course Agatha Christie is the "master" at plotting. These are not great literature nor will they cause the reader to stop and think weighty thoughts, but if you want a nice solidly written distraction, you'll love these stories.

I'm a huge Christie fan and love all her work. These short stories are a nice diversion from the popular Poirot and Miss Marple stories.

I enjoyed this anthology of Parker Pyne tales a great deal. I had forgotten that Christie wrote this little gem. Not as twisty as her other mysteries, but still worth reading.

Wonderful collection of short stories. Refreshing change from having a book that you have to remember what happened earlier. Sometimes go long periods between readings and these stories are just right for those occasions.
Agatha Christie is always good but this is one of her best. she has a collection of short stories from all over the world. From her home of the U.K. to Iraq and even medieval Iran. She traveled to Iran a few times and fell in love with the beautiful country as did I and when she came home she wrote about one of her favourite cities in Iran....or Persia as it was known to westerners back in those days. If you ever get a chance to ready this book I urge you to pick it up.

got my copy from C-Books in Lowestoft, Suffolk and I recommend them.
