Parker Pyne Investigates by Agatha Christie

Posted by BBCAA on Oct. 01, 2009

Fans of the mystery master will delight in this unique item from the Christie canon, never before available on CD. This collection of short stories features the redoubtable “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, Parker Pyne was possibly the worlds most unconventional private eye—and certainly its most charming. Agatha Christie (1890-1976) is deemed the most popular mystery writer of all time and the world’s bestselling author. She achieved Britain’s highest honor when she was made a Dame of the British Empire. The Mystery Writers of America awarded her their first-ever Grand Master Award in 1954.
