‘A treat for anyone looking for an antidote to the usual saccharine Christmas fayre.’ NB magazine
From the twice CWA Dagger shortlisted author of The Twelve Strange Days of Christmas come twelve thirteen stories to transport you to the macabre world of inexplicable phenomena.
As dark winter nights draw in, prepare to lose yourself in the world of the peculiar. With a tale for each day of the festive period and an unlucky thirteenth, Christmas is not the only spirit in these pages. ’Tis the season for sacrificial feasts, cultish communities and sinister rituals. So wrap up warm and get ready to be terrified and delighted as you journey from the spooky to the downright strange.
‘A treat for anyone looking for an antidote to the usual saccharine Christmas fayre...inventive and original and very entertaining.’
– NB magazine
‘A quick escape from the stresses of Christmas day!’
– Crime Review
‘Starting off strongly with [Moore’s] own irresistible take on the Seven Dwarfs… all featuring some element of the macabre or paranormal and infused with a robust sense of humour… they definitely suit the long, shadowy winter evenings, and it’s a fun collection if you like to get a little spooked but not entirely grossed-out.’
‘An indulgence for dark winter nights… transformed folk tales, folk horror… classic ghost stories, tales of supernatural revenge… a gorgeous collection.’
– Blue Book Balloon blog
