Abstract:

"Best friends Phillip Bethancourt, a wealthy man-about-town, and Scotland Yard Detective Sergeant Jack Gibbons are each on their way to Yorkshire over Christmas, though not together, and neither of them are looking forward to their respective trips. While Phillip is returning to his family?s estate to spend the holiday with relatives--a dreaded task--Jack must determine whether a particular murder is the work of a serial killer. It looks like it most likely is. As it turns out, Jack isn?t on the case for more than a day before the understaffed locals ask him to look in to another"--Page 2 of cover.
