Waterstones Says

The third Inspector Nightingale mystery presents the redoubtable detective with the corpse of a royal Russian émigré three days before Christmas. A thrillingly constructed whodunit redolent of festive seasons past, The Christmas Egg is the perfect yuletide caper to curl up with.   

Chief Inspector Brett Nightingale and Sergeant Beddoes find the body of Princess Olga Karukhin, who fled from Russia at the time of the Revolution. Taking place in the three days leading up to Christmas, Nightingale's enquiry takes him to a gramophone shop and a jewellers, culminating in the wrapping of the mystery on Christmas Eve.
