From New York Times and USA Today best-selling author M A Comley, who has sold over two and a half million copies worldwide.
Santa is dead…
Or is he?
DI Lorne Simpkins investigates the murder of a man wearing a Santa suit in the week leading up to Christmas.
Why was he inside Jilly Cartwright’s home?
Ho…Ho…How did he die and who killed him?
This is a Justice short story of 15000 words.
As it states on the book, this is a short story. It’s perfect for a long coffee or tea break with a packet, sorry, couple of biscuits.
Being set at Christmas time and involving Santa, there couldn’t be any better time to read it. Sadly it does remind us of the crimes that can take place around this time of year. Burglary is a despicable crime at anytime of year but at Christmas especially, well lets just say it’s enough to make my blood boil.
For a short story, it really sends your mind into a whirl about who the real victims are with this particular type of crime. Unfortunately I have very little sympathy for people who commit these crimes so my main concern was for the family whose home it is.
Have to say, fair play to the author as I never suspected who the person behind the killing actually was. I had many things running through my head and that was just not one of them. It made for quite a bit of a surprise.
Justice at Christmas is in part a nostalgic read now that the Justice series has finished, as well as a gripping one. It is always a pleasure to be back with Lorne and Pete, even if it does mean someone has to die for the readers and characters to be reunited again. A quick, gripping and suspenseful read that satisfied this happy reader.
My thanks to the author for an advanced readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
