Equally adept at putting together the fragments of a murder mystery or the pieces of a broken marriage, Mr. Parker Pyne is possibly the world's most unconventional private investigator. Armed with just his intuitive knowledge of human nature, he is an Englishman abroad, traveling the globe to solve and undo crime and misdemeanor.

Not a detective in sight
What did you love best about Parker Pyne Investigates?
The different stories and characters. Not a real detective story per se
What did you like best about this story?
The period details. Flappers and such like. One of Pyne's employees referred to as a 'vamp'
Which character – as performed by Hugh Fraser – was your favorite?
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
It did both. I very much enjoyed this book and also The Mysterious Mr. Quinn.
Any additional comments?
As much as I enjoy her detective novels I think a lot of readers/listeners miss the boat by not checking out Miss Christie's short stories. She had a real gift for writing them especially ones with a twist in the end.
