Savour seasonal sleuthing reading through these republished gems a lost treasury British crime-writing. Portrait of a Murderer: a grim family gathering on Christmas Eve, 1931 sees Adrian Gray’s houseguests wishing him anything but festive cheer. As Christmas Day dawns at Kings Poplars, the malevolent wish of one of his family has been granted and Gray is dead. This unusual novel presents a psychological portrait of the murderer and what happened on that dark, Christmas night. Originally published in 1933. The Christmas Egg: a missing jewelled Easter egg and the body of a Russian emigré challenges Chief Inspector Brett Nightingale and Sergeant Beddoes with a cast of suspects. Was it the downtrodden grandson, a plutocratic jeweller, or Bolsheviks with unfinished business? As Christmas approaches, a thrilling chase ensues across London to track down the culprit and the treasure in a tightly-paced, twisting, mystery thriller from 1958.
