Happy Christmas reading!

Among the various books that I’ll be reading over the next few weeks will be several seasonal classic crime stories.



One is the mystery Murder for Christmas by Francis Duncan which he wrote in 1949.  It was the second in his Mordecai Tremaine series, and a book that I don’t think I have ever read.




Another is Silent Nights – Christmas Mysteries which is an anthology of stories edited by Martin Edwards.  It includes ones by well known authors like Dorothy L.Sayers as well as little-known writers such as Ralph Plummer.




For my e-reader I’ve bought Hercule Poirot’s Christmas by Agatha Christie.  I’m sure to have read this, albeit a long time ago, but don’t recollect the story.


Happy Christmas reading!

    We’ve just read and reviewed ‘A Christmas Carol’ in book club, I enjoyed it and was surprised how different it was to the various TV/film adaptations.

    I really enjoy Dorothy Sayers and pulled The Nine Tailors from my bookshelf last year to reread. It sounds as though you’re well stocked with Christmas reading. Enjoy!

    I’m wondering which Sayers tale is in your anthology. She’s one of my favorites. Enjoy your reading!
