Fantasy Island for the mystery set!This isnt Agatha Christies typical who-dunnit mystery. Half the people that come to investigator Parker Pyne for help are just bored. Makes sense since thats who he advertises for, those who are unhappy and dont know what to do about it. So, his clients are often people with money who want someone else to make life interesting again for them...That is difficult for me to swallow.

I come from a background where money had to be hard-earned, penny by penny. As Ive aged Ive also learned the value of time. I tend to loath people who say, Im bored and I feel killing time deserves capital punishment. It is murder after all. So, I found the very premise of Parker Pyne Investigates repugnant.Much of this book is wish fulfillment. A client meets with Pyne, unburdens his woes, and then Pyne sets up an improbably scenario in order to spice up that persons life.

In these short stories, Pyne sets up thrilling adventures and minor mysteries to put a little pep in his clients lives. More than once the issue is little more than a husband or wife whos bored with the other. So Pyne creates jealousy and soon they both realize how foolish theyve been, how much they still love one another, and they live happily ever after. I honestly couldve slept my way through this book.There are a few actual crimes solved herein and occasionally Pyne flashes Sherlockian genius.

Pyne is no Poirot, other than his girth, but occasionally Christie cant help but mix in some of that crafty Belgiums cleverness. However, theres not enough character in this character. Again, his girth aside, Pyne is flat. The most interesting things about him are his intuition into human nature and his unintentionally absurd notion that lying to your significant other is the key to a solid relationship.

Yes, I understand white lies are what is meant or at least what it could be explained away as, but it honestly sounded like ridiculous, archaic advice column mumbo jumbo. Hell, this whole book is mumbo jumbo!!!
