A collection of short stories featuring the redoubtable `heart specialist', Parker Pyne. This volume, in its contemporary Agatha Christie Collection livery, perfectly illustrates Agatha Christie's critically-acclaimed foray into light-hearted, romantic mysteries.
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.
Agatha Christie was born in Torquay in 1890 and became the bestselling novelist in history. Her first novel, `The Mysterious Affair at Styles', introduced us to Hercule Poirot, the most popular detective since Sherlock Holmes. She is known throughout the world as the Queen of Crime and her works have sold over two billion copies - 80 crime books, 19 plays, and six novels under the name of Mary Westmacott.
