Parker Pyne Investigates by Agatha Christie


Antique paperback with great cover art.  

Nice, clean vintage paperback.  Water stain to text block visible on margins at front of book, but tapers off.  [see last 2 photos] Otherwise, very good. 

Curious? Then you're invited to read ... 'Parker Pyne Investigates'. Also known as, 'Mr. Parker Pyne, Detective'. Two titles, same great short stories. In fact 12 of them!

Our detective's personal ad posed a simple question, 'Are you happy? If not, consult Mr. Parker Pyne'. The answer was a resounding 'I am not happy' for a jealous wife who suspects her husband of infidelity, for a lonely widow driven to assume a new identity, for a distraught mother whose son has been kidnapped, and for a strangely reclusive bride-to-be. But what sort of detective would solicit in the personal column? The sort who has a knack for investigating affairs of the heart. For therein lie the darkest motives for murder. And they are proving most lucrative for the hopelessly romantic, and highly suspicious Parker Pyne.
