Recognized as the “Queen of Crime”, PDJames, is past master of the short story to weave motives from the Golden Age of crime-written with a deep psychological insight to create gripping, suspenseful tales.The Murder Mistletoe and Other Stories contained four of these perfectly formed stories, and this companion volume contains six others, published here for the first timeAs the six murderers tell stories of unfolding, the black motive of revenge is revealed in the heart of each oneThe bullying schoolmasters to receive what they deserved, unhappy marriages and childhood, are avenged, a murder in the early hours of Christmas Day morning puts an end to the spiral of the manor’s new lord again, and, from the safety of his nursing home, an 80’s exquisite exercise of vengeanceThe penalties imposed on the guilty are dignifiedly severe, but here they are imposed by invisible forces of natural justice rather than the institutions of the law.Once again, PDJames shows us his experts in controlling the short form of the narrative, evoking motives and scenarios with absolute conviction, and each with a good twist in the tail.
