All they want for Christmas is you . . .
In the picturesque village of Kibblesworth, DI Tom Stonem is dreaming of a quiet Christmas alone. But in the shadow of the Angel of the North, a body lies waiting. The dead man is posed with a child’s Christmas list in his pocket, and the first mysterious item –
1. No angel – is crossed off. When a second body is found – a woman, stabbed in the abdomen after her work Christmas do – Stonem is convinced there’s a grim connection between the crime scenes and the seemingly innocent list.
2. Red partee dress. Could this be a murderer’s twisted code? As a blizzard rages in the Tyne & Wear countryside, the body count is snowballing.
Can Stonem stop the killer before they get everyone on their Christmas list?
