A CHRISTMAS JOURNEY
"One of the best books to brighten the joyous season."
"This brief work has an almost Jamesian subtlety. . . . A] powerful message of responsibility and redemption."
-The Wall Street Journal
In the Berkshire countryside, family and guests have gathered for a delicious weekend fete surrounded by roaring fires and candlelight. It's scarcely the setting for misfortune, and no one-not even that clever budding sleuth Lady Vespasia Cumming-Gould-anticipates the tragedy that is to darken this holiday house party.
A CHRISTMAS VISITOR
"Satisfyingly dark and suspenseful."
"Wondrous . . . a welcome entry to the seasonal thriller."
At the Dreghorn family reunion, the tranquility of a snowbound English estate is shattered by what an apparently accidental death. The victim's distraught wife summons her godfather, the distinguished mathematician and inventor Henry Rathbone, to the scene. And questions about the tragic event soon turn into whispers of murder.
