Mystery Woman Sleuth
Meg and Michael’s house is serving as the marshaling
point for the annual Caerphilly Christmas parade. The theme
is “The Twelve Days of Christmas,” and it
features twelve drummers from the school marching band,
eleven bagpipers, ten leaping lords costumed in
medieval finery from the college drama department, etc.
There are also assorted Christmas-themed floats, a live
nativity scene on a flatbed truck, the Three Wise Men on
Caerphilly zoo camels, and Santa Claus in a bright red
horse-drawn sleigh (eight reindeer were beyond the zoo’s
Meg has been volunteered to organize the
parade, which is to proceed from her house to the local
campus, where Santa will take up residence to hear the
Christmas wishes of the town’s children. Of course, getting
all the camels, pipers, leapers, and drummers in order is
proving every bit as difficult as Meg feared it would be.
Then her nephew Eric, wide-eyed and ashen-faced, whispers,
“Meg, something’s wrong with Santa.”
curmudgeon, whose beard and belly made him a natural for the
role, has been murdered. Now Meg and Chief Burke, who is
playing one of the wise men, are faced with the two-fold
mission of solving the murder and saving Christmas!
Readers can look forward to another zany Meg
Langslow mystery---this one filled with outrageous Christmas
