Murder for Christmas

"On Christmas Eve, heavy snowfall brings a train to a halt near the village of Hemmersby. Several passengers take shelter in a deserted country house, where the fire has been lit and the table laid for tea - but no one is at home. Trapped together for Christmas, the passengers are seeking to unravel the secrets of the empty house when a murderer strikes in their midst."

Last year the British Library published a new edition of a 1930s book called Mystery in White which was a surprise best seller! Since then they have published a few more vintage holiday themed mysteries like The Santa Klaus Murder and Murder for Christmas (1949).

The popularity of them led Martin Edwards to publish a selection of these 'vintage' mysteries in his Silent Nights.

Apparently, I have been out of the loop when it comes to holiday murder mysteries!!
