Christmas Eve. While the world sleeps, snow falls gently from the sky, presents await under the tree ... and murder is afoot. In this collection of ten classic murder mysteries from the best crime writers in history, 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 to hand.

Sounds up my street but it will get released as part of the "CHRISTMAS IN JULY" Challenge whether read or not......

As ever with a selection of short stories, I enjoyed these to varying degrees. Most were what I'd class as "traditional" mysteries, there's nothing gory or gruesome in any of them...the most shocking thing being the idea of a postman delivering on Christmas Day morning!

This is one of the books I brought home from Leeds when a few local BookCrossers got together over lunch. Great fun, good to see you all!
I chose this one because I like the odd mystery and short stories can work well in some circumstances, for instance, I read the first one of these on my way home today :-)

All short story collections are a mixed bag - and this is more mixed than most!
I'm sure I recognised some of them but that's no reason not to read them again.
Why not celebrate Christmas in July?
