Posie Parker returns…


There is a mystery at the heart of each of us wich smoulders on…

Christmas Eve, 1923

Prepare for tales of unexplained murders, long-concealed mysteries, strange visitors in the night, and a secret in Posie’s own past which haunts her to this very day…

Join Posie Parker, London’s premier female Private Detective, and Chief Inspector Lovelace of New Scotland Yard as they spend a snowy holiday season at Rebburn Abbey, home of the Earl and Countess of Cardigeon.


As Christmas Eve draws to a close, each house guest is invited to share a personal mystery, but what unfolds turns out to be less a cozy cornucopia of fire-side Christmas cheer than a series of curiously interlinked and unsettling mysteries. But then, who promised that any of the tales had to be cozy?

And could it be, even at Rebburn Abbey on Christmas Eve, that the past can overshadow the present, casting dangerous shadows on those who don’t suspect? Does danger and the presence of evil lurk here? Even at the fire-side, among the presents and the holly and baubles and wine?

A Christmas Case is full of intrigue and red herrings. This is a classic mystery novella which will appeal to fans of Agatha Christie and Downton Abbey alike.
