    "I found this book to be surprising. It's not usually the sort of thing I read, this mystery drama type of affair. However, I was deeply satisfied: it's hard finding murders on Christmas, and refreshing to see such a sacred cow so readily butchered to feed my intellectual hunger. I totally didn't see the twist coming. "

    "What better time for a murder mystery than on Christmas day? Great suggestion! I've been a fan of some of the authors included in this ever since high school. That was when I read my first book by Agatha Christie, my personal favorite mystery writer. The other included authors also offer a great amount of talent and cool stories!"
