It’s Time For a Christmas Mystery

I must not be the only one who loves to read Christmas mysteries based on the availability of titles this time of year. Here is a new collection I have downloaded on my Kindle, which I have yet to begin, but am eagerly awaiting to enjoy. I’m counting on many more Christmas’s in order to read them all.

This is what Amazon has to say about the collection.

Edgar Award-winning editor Otto Penzler collects sixty of his all-time favorite holiday crime stories–many of which are difficult or nearly impossible to find anywhere else. From classic Victorian tales by Arthur Conan Doyle, Robert Louis Stevenson, and Thomas Hardy, to contemporary stories by Sara Paretsky and Ed McBain, this collection touches on all aspects of the holiday season, and all types of mysteries. Christmas cases for classic characters including Sherlock Holmes, Brother Cadfael, Miss Marple, Hercule Poirot, Ellery Queen, Rumpole of the Bailey, Inspector Morse, Inspector Ghote, A.J. Raffles, and Nero Wolfe.

I must add: The Christmas tree lights are off, the ‘Cottage for Two’ is quiet, prayers finished, and the lady of the house is propped up in bed. The bedside lamp casts light upon the first page of a Christmas mystery – ah-tradition!
