  • Information


Amateur detective extraordinaire Myrtle Hardcastle is back for Book 3 in this Edgar Award-winning, cozy mystery series.

Just as she was in Premeditated Myrtle (Book 1) and How to Get Away with Myrtle (Book 2), Myrtle is on the case again, tracking down a killer out for revenge amid the Christmas festivities in Victorian England. When the proprietor of Leighton's Mercantile is found dead on the morning his annual Christmas shop display is to be unveiled, it's clear a killer had revenge in mind.

But who would want to kill the local dry-goods merchant?

Perhaps someone who remembers the mysterious scandal that destroyed his career as a professor and archaeologist.

When the killer strikes again, each time manipulating the figures in the display to foretell the crime, Myrtle finds herself racing to uncover the long-buried facts of a cold case - and the motivations of a modern murderer.
