A holiday party takes on a sinister aspect when the colorful assortment of guests discovers there is a killer in their midst. The owner of the substantial estate, that old Scrooge Nathaniel Herriard, is found stabbed in the back.

The clever and daring crime will mystify readers, yet the answer is in plain sight all along...
