Christmas Eve and all is quiet.

While the world sleeps, snow falls gently from the sky, presents await under the tree ... and murder is afoot.

In this collection of ten classic murder mysteries from the best crime writers in history, death and mayhem take many festive forms, from the inventive to the unexpected.

From a Santa Claus with a grudge to a cat who knows who killed its owner on Christmas Eve, these are stories to enjoy - and be mystified by - in front of a roaring fire, mince pie to hand.

Includes contributions from writers including Val McDermid, Margery Allingham, Ellis Peters and Ian Rankin.
