A Surprise for Christmas

(2020)
And Other Seasonal Mysteries
An anthology of stories edited by

 
 
Two dead bodies and a Christmas stocking weaponised. A Postman murdered delivering cards on Christmas morning. A Christmas tree growing over a forgotten homicide.

It's the most wonderful time of the year, except for the victims of these shocking and often elaborate murders. When there's magic in the air, sometimes even the facts don't quite add up and the impossible can happen -- and its up to the detective's trained eye to unwrap the clues and put together an explanation neatly tied up with a bow.

Martin Edwards compiles an anthology filled with tales of seasonal suspense where the snow runs red, perfect to be shared between super-sleuths by the fire on a cold winter's night. Featuring Agatha Christie, Ngaio Marsh, Gerald Verner, Cyril Hare and more.
