Meg and Michael’s house is serving as the marshaling point for the annual Caerphilly Christmas parade. The theme is “The Twelve Days of Christmas,” and it features twelve drummers from the school marching band, eleven bagpipers, and so on. As organizer, Meg’s job is hard enough. But when her nephew Eric, wide eyed and ashen faced, whispers, “Meg, something’s wrong with Santa,” things take a tragic turn. The local curmudgeon, whose beard and belly made him a natural for the role, has been murdered. Now it’s up to Meg and Chief Burke to tackle the two-fold mission of solving the murder and saving Christmas!

This latest adventure from award-winning Donna Andrews is filled with outrageous Christmas spirit and malice.
