Parker Pyne untangles a case of death! Parker Pyne is still travelling abroad and in Shiraz he finds beauty and also a new case. In discussion with a German pilot he is told that that a Lady Esther Carr has gone crazy and recently her maid died. Pyne figures there is more to this than first appears so he calls on her and investigates.

Short, ho hum It has been a few weeks since I read this, but just remember that it was short and blah. I am a real Christie fan, but do not remember any Parker Pyne stories. Not on the lookout for more either. Lots of description of the area. Saw the end coming from miles away.

good A really short story. Good well written but about as brief as one can get. A few minutes at most
