Mr. Parker Pyne, Detective by Agatha Christie

Mr Parker Pyne nodded in a soothing manner. There is no real harm in it–that is your husband’s phrase, I have no doubt. ‘Why, therefore, should he not enjoy a pure friendship with this young lady, and be able to bring a little brightness, a little pleasure, into her dull existence? Poor child, she has so little fun. Those, I imagine, are his sentiments. Mrs Packington nodded with vigour. It was a quarter-past four when Mrs Packington once more entered Mr Parker Pyne’s office. She drew out a cheque book, made out a cheque and passed it to him. A receipt was given. And now?’ Mrs Packington looked at him hopefully. And now,’ said Mr Parker Pyne, smiling, ‘you will return home. By the first post tomorrow you will receive certain instructions which I shall be glad if you will carry ou. Mrs Packington went home in a state of pleasant anticipation.

Evan entered Mr Parker Pyne’s office on the Friday morning in a considerable turmoil. Hope and scepticism fought for mastery. Mr Parker Pyne rose to meet him with a beaming smile. Good morning, Mr Llewellyn. In 1926, after averaging a book a year, Agatha Christie wrote her masterpiece. The Murder of Roger Ackroyd was the first of her books to be published by Collins and marked the beginning of an author-publisher relationship which lasted for 50 years and well over 70 books. The Murder of Roger Ackroyd was also the first of Agatha Christie’s books to be dramatised–under the name Alibi–and to have a successful run in London’s West End. The Mousetrap, her most famous play of all, opened in 1952 and is the longest-running play in history. Agatha Christie was made a Dame in 1971.

Parker Pyne's cryptic notice on the front page of the Times draws him into twelve puzzling mysteries in London, Venice, and the Near East. One of the most successful and beloved writer of mystery stories, Agatha Mary Clarissa Christie was born in 1890 in Torquay, County Devon, England. She wrote her first novel, The Mysterious Affair at Styles, in 1920, launching a literary career that spanned decades. In her lifetime, she authored 79 crime novels and a short story collection, 19 plays, and six novels written under the name of Mary Westmacott.

Parker Pyne Investigates book. The forlorn, the anxious and the puzzled have all beaten. Parker Pyne is a different specimen from the Christie universe. He is not your conventional detective, but a person who provides "happiness"; his ad in the paper says: "Are you happy? If not, consult Mr. Parker Pyne. Having worked in the Statistical Bureau his whole life, Mr. Pyne knows that unhappiness can be classified under six heads - no more, no less. That said, apart from the first six stories, the others are all conventional stories of detection. I think Dame Agatha ran out of ideas for Parker Pyne is a different specimen from the Christie universe

Very unusual stories. I'm enjoying this book!
Nice edition of a classic book.
Great book
Agatha - always a favorite. This is a treasured collection of stories for the whole family. Totally recommend it to all.
Good read.
good, as you would accept of Agatha Christie
I love this book - and, when I placed it on my bookshelf, I realized I already owned a copy! These are great Agatha Christie stories - so different from her Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple series (which I also love to devour!). I have read the book numerous times over the years and plan on doing so again and again and again!
Light frilly very short stories. No detective, no crimes. Totally unlike AG. Reminded me of old 30 minute TV shows. Everybody's happy at the end. I didn't make it through. I'll stick to her murder mysteries.
