The Christmas Killer book cover

There’s nothing better than curling up with a good book during the winter months, and even better when it has a Christmas theme! Our Fiction Ed, Claire, has selected some of her favourite new releases, and over the next 12 days we’ll share them with you. Each author will read a short extract, so sit back and enjoy!

The Christmas Killer by Alex Pine

As the snow begins to fall, the body count begins to climb…

DI James Walker is ready for a quiet family Christmas in the sleepy village of Kirkby Abbey.

But when he opens an early Christmas present left on his doorstep, he soon realises it is no gift. Inside is a gruesome surprise, and a promise – twelve days, twelve murders. Not long after, the first body is found, half frozen in the snow.

As the blizzards descend, panic spreads through the remote Cumbrian village – there’s a killer amongst them, with eleven more victims to come!

Can Walker stop the killer before they strike again?
