Murder Under the Christmas Tree: Ten Classic Crime Stories for the Festive Seaso

£7.99

A murderer who materialises in a field of snow, leaving no footprints. Blackmail on Christmas Eve. A missing jewel discovered in a very festive hiding place. A body slumped in a chair on Christmas morning, still listening to carols. The midnight theft of a gift intended for a saint. Crime doesn’t take a holiday, so these – and many more – are the puzzles that make up ‘Murder Under the Christmas Tree’, a collection of festive mysteries featuring fictional sleuths from Miss Marple to Sherlock Holmes, Cadfael to Father Brown.
