#TuesdayBookBlog #bookreview for The Mistletoe Murder and Other Stories by P D James #murdermystery #crime #shortstories

The Mistletoe Murder and Other Stories was my latest pick from our mobile library.

I love murder mysteries and short stories so this was a perfect choice for me. The title story is about a strained country-house Christmas party and has a nice little twist at the end. A Very Commonplace Murder is about an illicit affair that ends in murder, then there are two cases for detective Adam Dalgliesh. I particularly enjoyed The Twelve Clues of Christmas.

This was an enjoyable read and even though they cover murder they are set at a more innocent time when crime solving required nothing more than an astute policeman with an eye for a clue. Well written and cleverly plotted these are highly recommended.
