Each year, for the past seventeen years, Mysterious Bookshop proprietor Otto Penzler has commissioned an original Christmas story by a leading suspense writer. These stories were then produced as pamphlets, just 1,000 copies, and given to customers of the bookstore as a Christmas present. Now, all seventeen tales have been collected in one volume, showcasing the talents of:
  • Charles Ardai
  • Lisa Atkinson
  • George Baxt
  • Lawrence Block
  • Mary Higgins Clark
  • Thomas H. Cook
  • Ron Goulart
  • Jeremiah Healy
  • Edward D. Hoch
  • Rupert Holmes
  • Andrew Klavan
  • Michael Malone
  • Ed McBain
  • Anne Perry
  • S. J. Rozan
  • Jonathan Santlofer
  • Donald E. Westlake
Some of these stories are humorous, others suspenseful, and still others are tales of pure detection, but all of them together make up a charming collection and a perfect Christmas gift for all ages.
