'Tis the season-to be dead...

A holiday party takes on a sinister aspect when the colorful assortment of guests discovers there is a killer in their midst. The owner of the substantial estate, that old Scrooge Nathaniel Herriard, is found stabbed in the back. While the delicate matter of inheritance could be the key to this crime, the real conundrum is how any of the suspects could have entered a locked room to commit the foul deed.

For Inspector Hemingway of Scotland Yard, the investigation is complicated by the fact that every guest is hiding something-throwing all of their testimony into question and casting suspicion far and wide. The clever and daring crime will mystify readers, yet the answer is in plain sight all along...


Praise for Georgette Heyer:

"Miss Heyer's characters and dialogue are an abiding delight to me...I have seldommet people to whom I have taken so violent a fancy from the word 'Go'." - Dorothy L. Sayers

"A writer of great wit and style." - Daily Telegraph

"Ms. Heyer is one of the most entertaining writers I have ever ready." - Reading Extravaganza

"Miss Heyer has the delightful talent of blending humor with mystery." - Boston Evening Transcript

Georgette Heyer wrote over fifty books, including Regency Romances, mysteries, and historical fiction. Her barrister husband Ronald Rougier, provided many of the plots for her detective novels, which are classic English country house mysteries reminiscent of Agatha Christie. Heyer was legendary for her research, historical accuracy, inventive plots, and sparkling characterizations.
