Our friends at Strand Magazine, the online publication dedicated to mysteries and short fiction, have published a list of mysteries set in the holiday season.  Strand is the contemporary version of the same named magazine that originally published Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes stories.

One you finish these recommended short stories you’ll know why we suggest you be wary of the plum pudding, and be especially suspicious of the relative who has the most to gain by your untimely exit off of Terror Firma.
