Description from Net Galley:
‘Tis the season for suspense! Get in the holiday spirit with ten excerpts from Christmas–themed mysteries and thrillers. This sampler includes excerpts from classic favorites like Dorothy L. Sayers and Ellery Queen, to contemporary bestsellers like Charlotte MacLeod and William Bernhardt. And for a bonus, we’ve included excerpts from three mysteries to celebrate the New Year!
Charlotte MacLeod, Lawrence Sanders, Ellery Queen, Jane Haddam, William Bernhardt, Stuart Palmer, Jane Dentinger, William L. DeAndrea, Jane Langton, Gillian White, Dorothy L. Sayers, Loren D. Estleman, and Patricia Wentworth.
What could be better for the holidays? Christmas Mysteries is an anthology of short stories surrounding mysteries and thrillers. It’s a wonderful collection to keep you up at night while waiting for Santa to bring more goodies in the New Year.
A couple of my favorites:
Rest You Merry by Charlotte MacLeod
The Fourth Deadly Sin” by Lawrence Sanders
Not a Creature was Stirring by Jane Haddam
