Parker Pyne Investigates Paperback
A collection of short stories featuring the 'heart specialist', Parker Pyne.
Mrs Packington felt alone, helpless and utterly forlorn.
But her life changed when she stumbled upon an advertisement in The Times which read: '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, Mr Parker Pyne was possibly the world's most unconventional private eye - and certainly its most charming.

Review by riverwillow
Interesting premise whereby an ex-civil servant, who worked in some kind of stastical analysis, sets himself to happy people become happy. He is not always successful. There is a generally a twist in the tale which makes these stories enjoyable. This collection is also noteworthy for introducing Ariadne Oliver, who appears in some of the later Poirot novels.
