The Christmas Card Crime : and other stories Paperback / softback

Edited by Martin Edwards

Part of the British Library Crime Classics series


A Christmas party is punctuated by a gunshot under a policeman's watchful eye.

A jewel heist is planned admist the glitz and glamour of Oxford Street's Christmas shopping.

Lost in a snowstorm, a man finds a motive for murder. This collection of mysteries explores the darker side of the festive season - from unexplained disturbances in the fresh snow, to the darkness that lurks beneath the sparkling decorations.

With neglected stories by John Bude and E. C. R. Lorac, as well as tales by little-known writers of crime fiction, Martin Edwards blends the cosy atmosphere of the fireside story with a chill to match the temperature outside.

This is a gripping seasonal collection sure to delight mystery fans.
