Two of Mary Higgins Clark's most beloved characters, Alvirah, the lottery winner turned amateur sleuth, and her husband Willy, get caught up in a Christmas mystery that calls on all of Alvirah's deductive powers, as well as Willy's world-class common sense. When the story begins, Willy is looking forward to playing Santa Clause at the after-school center his sister Cordelia has established to care for the children of working parents on New York's upper West Side, while Alvirah is busy with rehearsals for the Christmas pageant.

But suddenly a pall falls upon the Christmas cheer. The center itself is threatened with being closed down, a substitute that has been promised is withdrawn, a desperate young woman appears who begs for Alvirah's help in finding the baby she abandoned seven years earlier, and -- the final blow -- the little girl who is to play the Blessed Mother in the Christmas pageant vanishes. Alvirah is soon on the trail of the truth, which must be found before Christmas, which leads to the theft of a valued chalice that is somehow at the heart of the mystery.

A missing chalice. A missing child. A desperate mother. Who but Alvirah can sort it out in time for Christmas? Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Maverick | 2/12/2014

    " A quick-read, with an uplifting holiday spirit that is was suspenseful and delightful. It can be read on a nice cold afternoon. A nice Christmas story with a happy ending. It is easy to read and entertaining. Kept me wondering how the mystery would unravel and it wasn't too sappy like most Christmas books are. "

    " I found this story slow, boring, and very predictable; the ending is evident from the start. I occasionally read Miss Higgins books but this one I have to admit should have stayed at the book store. "
