Dominic and Clarice Corde, who met and fell in love in Brunswick Gardens, journey to a quaint hamlet to replace the local vicar who is away on holiday. The holiday takes a nasty turn when the vicar is discovered not to be away at all, but brutally murdered and stashed in the cellar. So instead of fulfilling the vicar’s duties, the Cordes are charged with solving his murder. All the while, the picturesque village is becoming increasingly and dangerously snowbound, its residents trapped as a killer remains at large. The crime’s surprising solution reveals not only the killer, but the true meaning of the Christmas message. Download and start listening now!


Quotes & Awards

  • “Anne Perry’s prim Victorian mysteries, steeped in a world of antimacassars, proper high teas, and elderflower wine, have a certain antique charm.”

    Entertainment Weekly

  • “Well-written…Perry does a nice job of weaving in themes of forgiveness and redemption without being heavy-handed.

    Publishers Weekly

  • “The splendid Terrence Hardiman seems to get even better and better as a narrator…Setting, especially weather, plays an important part in Perry’s atmospheric novels, and Hardiman aptly delivers the author’s portrait of an English village in the late nineteenth century. This is perfect for Perry fans and those who simply want to enjoy an exceptional performance.”


  • “Engaging characters, a vivid sense of time and place, and a cozy setting add enjoyment to this Victorian mystery.”


  • “In Perry’s enthralling page-turner, a quiet Christmas holiday becomes riddled with mystery and murder…A nineteenth-century English vicar and his wife, are intelligent, believable characters whose amateur-sleuthing efforts grow increasingly intriguing as they find themselves in harm’s way.”

    " This tale of the dashing Dominic Corde from the first Pitt novel shows him as a nicer, now re-married curate substituting at a parish for a vacationing vicar who is discovered dead. He and his wife have to find the killer, but the story was very good and the character of Rev. Corde was all about forgiveness and redemption. I really liked this Christmas story. "

    " Perry's books are so easy to read and her characters are always so clear. "

    " Set in Victorian England-- not my favorite era, but since this did not deal with the political issues/situation, it was more acceptable to me. I was disturbed-- and thought there was some failing on the part of the author-- when no one asked Branscome who his wife was when it was evident that it was someone in or near the village and she was obviously a "person of interest" in the death of the Vicar.
