As the snow begins to fall, the body count begins to climb…
DI James Walker is ready for a quiet family Christmas in the sleepy village of Kirkby Abbey.
But when he opens an early Christmas present left on his doorstep, he soon realises it is no gift. Inside is a gruesome surprise, and a promise – twelve days, twelve murders. Not long after, the first body is found, half-frozen in the snow.
As the blizzards descend, panic spreads through the remote Cumbrian village – there’s a killer amongst them, and with eleven more victims to go, anyone could be next….
Can James stop the killer before they strike again?
Alex Pine was born and raised on a council estate in South London and left school at sixteen. Before long, he embarked on a career in journalism, which took him all over the world – many of the stories he covered were crime-related. Among his favourite hobbies are hiking and water-based activities, so he and his family have spent lots of holidays in the Lake District. He now lives with his wife on a marina close to the New Forest on the South Coast – providing him with the best of both worlds!
What an excellent place to live?

WHAT DID I THINK?
Flipping excellent, I couldn’t put this down so read it in a couple of days. I love the way the murders happened unexpectantly and more than one! So well written with great characters that all fit in with the surroundings. Lots of red herrings to put you off the scent they were so good I didn’t twig who the murderer was, but that’s not unusual for me, as you well know. I will be recommending this to my friends who love a good murder plus there are no gory bits, it’s like it is happening to real people in a village. I loved it and will be looking out for the next one from Alex Pine or should I say, JP Carter.
