[A] powerful message of responsibility and redemption." -The Wall Street Journal In the Berkshire countryside, family and guests have gathered for a delicious weekend fEte surrounded by roaring fires and candlelight. It's scarcely the setting for misfortune, and no one-not even that clever budding sleuth Lady Vespasia Cumming-Gould-anticipates the tragedy that is to darken this holiday house party. A CHRISTMAS VISITOR "Satisfyingly dark and suspenseful." -Entertainment Weekly "Wondrous...? welcome entry to the seasonal thriller." -Richmond Times-Dispatch At the Dreghorn family reunion, the tranquility of a snowbound English estate is shattered by what an apparently accidental death.
