Synopses & Reviews
The newest adventure featuring the mismatched romantic crime-fighting duo of New York City film critic Mitch Berger and Connecticut State Resident Trooper Desiree Mitry presents Des with her first taste of Christmas in the historic New England village of Dorset.
And what a taste it is. Three blizzards have blanketed the village in forty inches of snow. Bryce Peck, Mitchs blue-blooded neighbor out on Big Sister Island, has just been found dead of a drug overdose. Young Kylie Champlain has slammed her car head-on into an office building after shes caught trying to shoplift a pair of Ugg boots. And a grinch has taken to stealing the mail from Hank Merrills postal route, which happens to be the main route through the historic district.
Stealing the U.S. mail is a serious federal crime, but Des soon discovers that shes onto something much bigger: a black-market prescription drug gang with ties to organized crime. And now a fourth blizzard is on its way. And so is another murder. And, somehow, the man in her life has managed to land himself smack dab in the middle of the whole mess. Not to mention that hes in way over his head with Josie Cantro, the beautiful and treacherous life-coach who just may be responsible for it all. If Des doesnt act fast, this will truly be a Christmas to remember---but for all of the wrong reasons.
David Handlers ninth book in this original series is brimming with plenty of murder, mayhem, and holiday spirit.
"Neither rain, nor sleet, nor dark of night can keep postmen from their appointed rounds. But how about murder?...Fans of Des and Mitch will giggle as Mitch decorates his Hanukkah bush with her teeny weeny yellow bikini."--Kirkus Reviews
