    A Surprise for Christmas: And Other Seasonal Mysteries

    Another selection of Christmas Crime mysteries from the likes of Golden Age authors Agatha Christie, Julian Symons and John Dickson Carr, this title has been edited by British Library Crime Classics series consultant, Martin Edwards, whose previous Christmas anthologies (Silent Nights, The Christmas Card Crime, etc.) have been incredibly popular.

    Two dead bodies and a Christmas stocking weaponised. A Postman murdered delivering cards on Christmas morning. A Christmas tree growing over a forgotten homicide. It’s the most wonderful time of the year, except for the victims of these shocking and often elaborate murders. When there’s magic in the air, sometimes even the facts don’t quite add up and the impossible can happen – and it’s up to the detective’s trained eye to unwrap the clues and put together an explanation neatly tied up with a bow.

    Martin Edwards compiles an anthology filled with tales of seasonal suspense where the snow runs red, perfect to be shared between super-sleuths by the fire on a cold winter’s night.
