A Christmas short story of 10,000 involving all the old members of the team.
DI Lorne Simpkins and her partner DS Pete Childs encounter a dangerous gang of Santas who plan on creating havoc on the streets of London on Christmas Eve.
Pete is persuaded to go undercover to foil the gang's audacious plan.
Beware of Santa!! Especially when he's in the streets jingling bells and collecting charity money. You won't trust anyone dressed as Santa again once you read this short Justice novella.
I won't say anything on the plot since it's a very short story. I'll just say that it's a clever mixture of fast-paced, suspenseful moments, some relaxed ones and even laugh-out-loud moments, all against a Christmassy backdrop. In short... a delightful read.
It's so lovely to have Pete back from time to time. He's such a great, lovable character and when on the beat with Lorne, the pair form such a formidable, complimentary team. I just love the banter going on between them. I'm so sorry that the author killed off Pete so early on in the main Justice series, but I'm always so happy when I meet him again in these short surprise novellas the author awards us with from time to time.
Want to get in the mood for Christmas without losing the thrill? Then read 'Justice at Christmas'. I'm sure you'll love it as much as I did.
With thanks to the author for an ARC of this book.
