Featuring: Henry Rathbone
Add to Wish List
Renowned for her acclaimed Victorian novels as well as a
stunning new series set in World War I, Anne Perry
consistently dazzles us with stories rife with emotion,
intrigue, and psychological depth. She recently expanded
her talents with the delightfully rendered novella, A
Christmas Journey, which USA Today called “one of the best
books to brighten the joyous season.” Now she has given
readers another gift–a yuletide offering full of holiday
magic . . . and murder.
The Dreghorn family is gathering for an anticipated reunion
in the Lake District of England. The blissful tranquility
of the snowbound estate, however, is soon shattered by what
appears to be an accidental death. The victim’s distraught
wife, Antonia, summons her godfather, distinguished
mathematician and inventor Henry Rathbone–one of the most
beloved characters from Perry’s bestselling William Monk
series. But questions about the tragic event turn into
whispers of murder, sending shock waves among members of
the Dreghorn clan, who haven’t seen each other in ten years.
Now Rathbone must put his analytical and creative
capacities to the test as he assumes the role of an amateur
investigator. But while searching for clues and mulling
over potential motives, he cannot help but wonder: Will
another poor soul meet the same untimely end–and be
silenced like the night?
In this Christmas novella, featuring a colorful, somewhat
eccentric cast of characters and an irresistible plot as
twisty as a ribbon, Rathbone rescues the holiday with a
grace that would impress William Monk himself.
