A Parker Pyne story


Parker Pyne Investigates

Parker Pyne Investigates

Twelve tantalising cases for the retired private investigator Parker Pyne, who solves the personal cases that Scotland Yard won’t handle.

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.
