An enjoyable and eclectic collection of short mysteries with a Christmas theme, from Golden Age and modern mystery writers. I particularly liked "Death in the Christmas Hour," a very unusual story about Christmas toys coming to life one hour each year. Yes, even toys can commit murder! If you enjoy reading mystery short stories, you probably will like this collection.

This suspense filled collection gathers together some of today's best mystery writers in 10 frightfully festive stories of Christmas and murder. I liked "Death in the Christmas Hour" the best. Very imaginative and a lot of fun.
