Description
The British LibraryAn evocative, seasonal mystery from the ‘golden age’ of British crime writing. Republished texts, reflecting attitudes of the time.
The Melbury family and their guests gather for Christmas at Flaxmere, the aristocratic country pile, in a classic Christmas whodunnit. With mistrust and grudges galore, truculent patriarch Sir Osmond hints he will be changing his will, putting paid to festivities for some in the party. But the charged atmosphere turns positively funereal when Sir Osmond is found, shot dead on Christmas morning while wearing a Santa suit. Can Colonel Halstock unpick the mixed motives of the family and their servants? Or could it be that Santa Klaus himself was the killer? A delightful country-house mystery with red herrings, a claustrophobic setting and suspicious characters at every turn. Originally published in 1936, a sought-after detective novel by Mavis Doriel Hay (1894-1979): perfect to ponder over Christmas.
