Steal yourself away this winter with a collection of festive mysteries from the Queen of Suspense and international bestseller, Mary Higgins Clark.

The Christmas Thief


When someone steals a ninety-foot Christmas tree on its way to Rockefeller Center, Alvirah Meehan, lottery winner turned amateur sleuth, must track it down. He knows the tree is irreplaceable. But he doesn’t know that, hidden in a hole in the tree’s trunk, is a fortune in priceless gems…
 
Dashing through the Snow

The quiet town of Branscombe is famous for its annual Yuletide Festival of Joy. But joy is in short supply this Christmas season, when a local man is cheated out of a winning $160 million lottery ticket, and then vanishes. It’s up to Alvirah to figure out where the missing man is…and who wound up with his ticket.
 
Silent Night


A little boy named Brian is the only witness to a crime: a pickpocket stealing a precious family heirloom from his mother. Brian takes matters into his own hands and follows the thief into New York’s labyrinthine subway system, determined to get the heirloom back, as he believes it will cure his seriously ill father. But it’s not long before Brian, his mother and the thief become part of an extraordinary story that will teach them the true meaning of Christmas.

Each of these stories is a delightful, Christmassy treat, perfect reading for cold winter nights.
