Despite the best attempts of jovial Uncle Joseph, the Herriard family's Christmas reunion at Lexham Manner is far from jolly. Nathaniel Herriard, owner of the estate, would prefer not to have the gathering in the first place, and his querulous relatives (and their insufferable guests) all seem to have their own selfish agendas. When Nathaniel is found murdered in his study, it seems many of the houseguests have motives for murder, and all of them seem to be hiding something. But how could anyone have entered the locked room to commit the crime? Inspector Hemingway of Scotland Yard must sift through the scant evidence - and the outspoken opinions and conflicting testimonies of the colorful assortment of holiday revelers - to discover the truth. Comical, confounding, and compelling, Georgette Heyer's delightful A Christmas Party is a perfect holiday read for mystery lovers - just add a cozy fire and a glass of eggnog! [Note: Bas Bleu previously carried this book under the title Envious Casca.] (AG)
