The fifth in Anne Perry's series of charming Christmas novellas. For Superintendent Runcorn, Christmas has rarely looked so bleak. Believing that a change of scenery may help him finally forget Melisande Ewart, Runcorn heads for the beautiful, desolate Isle of Anglesey. Any hopes of Christmas passing quietly are dashed, however, when he discovers Melisande is also in Anglesey and, moreover, that she is engaged to another man. Then the local vicar's sister is found murdered and Melisande's brother is implicated in the crime. Determined to assist Melisande in her time of need, Runcorn resolves to find the killer. Is it possible in doing so, that he will also win the heart of his one true love?

Texte du rabat

Runcorn, Monk's ex-boss and a bachelor, travels to Anglesey to stave off the loneliness of Christmas and the memories of Melisande, the woman he fell in love with in DARK ASSASSIN. But, he immediately meets Melisande's brother, John Barclay, and learns of Melisande's presence in Anglesey. Although a widow, Runcorn believes that Melisande is too far above him in society to win her heart and then fate intervenes. As Runcorn investigates a murder, he learns that life for an upper class woman is hard especially when you are considered unmarriageable. Will Runcorn solve the case, and win Melisande's heart?
