Blurb: “Charlotte MacLeod, the Queen of the Whimsical Whodunit, presents a collection of new mystery stories centered around a Yuletide theme, written by some of the best practitioners of the cozy mystery working today - including Mary Higgins Clark, Isaac Asimov, Peter Lovesey, Marcia Muller, Aaron Elkins, and Ms. MacLeod herself!

For over a hundred years, the Christmas season has had an irresistible appeal to authors who work in crime. Every one of the great detectives of literature - from Sherlock Holmes to Hercule Poirot to Nero Wolfe-has endured a holiday marred by murder. Now, the modern masters of mystery turn their detective creations loose in dark December.

The perfect holiday gift for a friend or relation with a taste for delicate and refined murder, Mistletoe Mysteries is also an ideal present to give your-self. The Yule log is blazing, the cats are purring, the tree is all atwinkle, you're comfortably full of goose and plum pudding - now's the time to curl up with first-rate tales of Noel nastiness.

"A great collection." — St. Louis Post-Dispatch
