Abstract:

This book includes four mysteries regarding crimes at Christmas from four popular mystery writers. Mystery # 1:The Headless Magi in which Terence Faherty's metaphysical sleuth, Owen Keane, is working at a crisis phone line in New Jersey, where several alarming calls from a young boy coincide with vandalism at a local Nativity scene, bringing a thought-provoking mystery home for the holidays. Mystery # 2: Christmas Cache in which Aileen Schumacher's New Mexico engineer and amateur sleuth, Tory Travers, agrees to let her teenage son house-sit at the local university's experimental solar-heated home and ends up with a challenging Christmas puzzle - a mysterious shooting, a backyard full of buried cash, and original paintrings even she can recognize. Mystery #3: Stocking Stuffer by Wendi Lee's whose Boston P.I., Angela Matelli, who is doing undercover security work during the holiday shopping rush, struggles to clear a woman accused of killing her ex-husband in a mystery filled with enough bizarre twists for an unexpected unwrapping of a Christmas killer. Mystery #4: The Empty Manger in which Bill Crider's sheriff, Dan Rhodes, has his hands full with a "living" manger scene downtown when the body of the local councilwoman is found nearby. Rhodes has a suspect list as long as a string of Christmas lights --but it's old-fashioned horse sesnse that leads to a surprises killer.
