A Very Murderous Christmas

Cecily Gayford

ISBN 9781788161015

The Christmas season is one of comfort and joy, sparkling lights and steam rising from cups of mulled wine at frosty carol services. A season of goodwill to all men, as families and friends come together to forget their differences and celebrate the year together.

Unless, of course, you happen to be harbouring a grudge. Or hiding a guilty secret. Or you want something so much you just have to have it - whatever the cost. In A Very Murderous Christmas, ten of the best classic crime writers come together to unleash festive havoc, with murder, mayhem and twists aplenty.

Following Murder on Christmas Eve and Murder under the Christmas Tree, this is the perfect accompaniment to a mince pie and a roaring fire. Just make sure you're really, truly alone...















The Author

A Very murderous Christmas includes stories from Anthony Horowitz, Margery Allingham, G. K. Chesterton, Ruth Rendell, John Mortimer, Adrian Conan Doyle & John Dickson Carr, Nicholas Blake, Edward Hoch, Gladys Mitchell and Colin Dexter.
