Today's Christmas book is a collection of 10 short stories ranging from those written many years ago - to the more recent - including one weird one by Val McDermid. Not sure where or when I acquired this but there it was on my shelf.....waiting.
"Christmas Eve. While the world sleeps, snow falls gently from the sky,
presents lie under the tree ... and murder is afoot. In this collection
of ten classic murder mysteries by the best crime writers from the 1920s
to today, death and mayhem take many festive forms, from the inventive
to the unexpected.
From a Santa Claus with a grudge to a cat who knows who killed its owner on Christmas Eve, these are stories to enjoy - and be mystified by - in front of a roaring fire, mince pie in hand."
This collection was put together and published in 2017. I read and enjoyed it at the end of November and will be back tomorrow with giveaway info on the 4 crime books mentioned so far. They are packed ready. Just need names and addresses.
