Escaping to Stromboli for Christmas, Charles Latterly never expected to find himself in grave danger...

Set in Italy in 1866, A Christmas Escape is Anne Perry's thirteenth festive Victorian novella. Perfect for fans of C. J. Sansom and Harriet Smart.

December, 1866. Charles Latterly, Hester Monk's brother, travels to Italy to spend Christmas on the volcanic island of Stromboli. In his secluded mountain hotel a curious group of people have gathered, and Charles senses a brittle strain between some of his fellow guests as they visit the crater of the island's famous rumbling volcano.

While the guests prepare for Christmas, the volcano threatens to erupt, and they realise they must leave at once. As they plan their escape, with Charles thrust reluctantly into leading the group to shelter, one of their number is found dead. But if this is murder, there is a killer in their midst, and Charles must navigate a path to safety...
