Parker Pyne Investigates 4.2 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 11 reviews.

"Are you happy? If not consult Mr. Parker Pyne, 17 Richmond Street." This the advertisement from the times and how we make our acquaintance with this detective of the heart. Though not so flamboyantly brilliant as Hercule Poirot, he has the enviable ability to solve *almost* any issue laid to hand. Rarely involved with murder, Mr. Parker Pyne's cases resonate with the everyman. Largely fun and light-hearted, but also thought-provoking. Recommended!
