This “collection of Soho crime Christmas capers” runs the gamut from a tale of nine mall Santas to that of a Korean War POW camp.  Not all the stories are “sugar-plum laden” and some contain familiar personages such as Jane Austen, Machiavelli, and Sherlock Holmes’ nemesis Irene Adler.  Many are by authors totally unfamiliar to me and I’ve quickly added them to my “must read” list.

Each story is just the right length to read when you need to take a break in your day.  They’ll certainly keep you thinking long after you’ve turned the last page.
