The Christmas Egg by Mary Kelly. The latest treasure unearthed from the British Library Crime Classics archive, The Christmas Egg is a tightly-paced, quirky and highly enjoyable jewel of the British crime genre. This never-before-republished novel goes beyond the neat puzzles of country house historical mysteries by delivering the darker side of British police procedurals in an evocative urban setting. $14.95

 

A Christmas Resolution by Anne Perry. A smitten woman is about to marry a dangerous man—unless Detective Hooper and his new wife, Celia, can prevent it. But Celia herself has not always been truthful, especially not during the murder trial following her cousin’s death. How can she be believed now, when she lied on the stand? This Yuletide season finds love and faith put to the test. Hardcover, $21.00

 

The Mistletoe Murder and Other Stories by P.D. James. Four previously uncollected stories from one of the great mystery writers of our time--swift, cunning murder mysteries (two of which feature the young Adam Dalgliesh) that together, to borrow the author's own word, add up to a delightful "entertainment." Each of these stories is as playful as it is ingeniously plotted, the author's sly humor as evident as her hallmark narrative elegance and shrewd understanding of some of the most complex—not to say the most damning—aspects of human nature. $15.95

A Maigret Christmas and Other Stories by Georges Simenon. A lighthearted holiday collection of Jules Maigret’s exploits. Many of these stories feature observant and resourceful children, frightened yet resolute, who bring out a paternal streak in the childless Maigret. The rapport between the inspector and these youthful heroes imparts a delightful freshness to this holiday collection. A Maigret Christmas is a cornucopia for fans of Maigret and mysteries alike. $13.00
