Parker Pyne Investigates

Parker Pyne Investigates - Agatha Christie

This is a collection of twelve short stories, all pretty enjoyable, if somewhat disconcerting. Mr. Parker Pyne is one terrifying individual with some rather questionable views on women, marriage, and how to achieve happiness (lying, assault, and kidnapping are all acceptable methods according to him). I was entertained, but I was not in the least surprised that no Mrs. Parker Pyne is ever alluded to. ;)
