Thomas and Charlotte Pitt's former maid takes a new job as Christmas approaches--but not everyone in the household may survive the holidays in this tension-filled novel from bestselling author Anne Perry.

Gracie slowly realizes, though, that Granny is suffering from neglect--and rather than helping her, the husband and wife have decided she isn't dying fast enough. . . .
