Upper Edmonton Gardens is decked with boughs of holly - and wedding bells will make this season all the more jolly. Until one humbug sings a carol of murder.
'Tis just weeks before Christmas, and all through the house, every creature is stirring. Just as Inspector Gerald Witherspoon's staff prepares for the long-awaited wedding of Betsy and Smythe, an unwelcome surprise falls in the Inspector's lap: a Yuletide murder.
A quiet, middle-aged spinster has been killed in what her murderer hoped would look like another random crime in London's recent spate of violence. But the inspector suspects otherwise - and his investigation reveals a web of lies, intrigue, and long-buried secrets. With uncooperative witnesses, sulking relatives, and a second Christmas wedding , a simple investigation seems as unlikely as catching St. Nick at work. And the household will have to take a break from its holiday celebrating to save the Inspector's reputation.
