Journal Entry 1 by AngelChild from Maidstone, Kent United Kingdom on Saturday, February 25, 2006
The premise is good: a retired government statistician helps solve people's life problems with the aid of his good looking staff who bring excitement to the bored, jealousy to the hearts of neglectful husbands. Christie uses locations in the Middle East she knew at first hand. But it's all a bit frothy and disappointing--maybe because the stories have to be so simple and short. PP is not the fully rounded character he could be. If you like these stories (and what's not to like?) you will love her MR QUIN stories, written earlier when she didn't need to churn work out for money. The Quin stories are psychological, have an appealing central character, use interesting locations (Corsica, Madeira) and have genuine depth, poetry, mystery and humour.
