Title: Twelve Clues of Christmas

Author: Rhys Bowen

 She may be thirty-fifth in line for the
throne, but Lady Georgiana Rannoch cannot wait to ring in the New
Year—before a Christmas killer wrings another neck…

On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me—well, actually, my true love, Darcy O’Mara, is spending a feliz navidad
tramping around South America. Meanwhile Mummy is holed up in a tiny
village called Tiddleton-under-Lovey with that droll Noel Coward! And
I’m snowed in at Castle Rannoch with my bumbling brother, Binky, and
sourpuss sister-in-law, Fig.
So it’s a miracle when I
contrive to land a position as hostess to a posh holiday party in
Tiddleton. The village is like something out of A Christmas Carol!
But no sooner have I arrived than a neighborhood nuisance, a fellow
named Freddie, falls out of a tree dead.  On my second day, another
so-called accident results in a death – and there’s yet another on my
third.  Perhaps a recent prison break could have something to do with
it…that, or a long-standing witch’s curse. But after Darcy shows up
beneath the mistletoe, anything could be possible in this wicked

Includes an English Christmas companion, full of holiday recipes, games, and more!

Author Discussion & Signing with Raymond Benson

Come to Centuries & Sleuths to meet with Raymond Benson as he talks about his last volume of The Black Stiletto Series, Endings & Beginnings on Sunday November 16, 2014 at 2:00 PM.


Raymond Benson's The Black Stiletto: Endings & Beginnings is the
startling, climactic finale to the five-book, critically-acclaimed saga
of The Black Stiletto. It's 1962. Judy Cooper, the Black Stiletto, is
devastated at the betrayal by her nemesis and former lover, mobster Leo
Kelly. Additionally, Leo and his psychotically dangerous sister,
Christina, have set out to ruin the Stiletto's reputation in L.A. with a
series of crimes that are made to appear as if the crime-fighter is
responsible. The very pregnant Judy must fight back only with her wits
and cunning-until disaster strikes and she is forced to flee to her old
home town in Texas for the final showdown with destiny. Meanwhile, in
the present, the Alzheimer's that afflicts elderly Judy is in its last
stage, but her son and granddaughter, Martin and Gina, must continue to
protect her from the past's last remaining assault, culminating in a
cathartic and explosive conclusion."
