A NEW CHRISTMAS SHORT STORY – from the author of bestselling murder mystery Death and Croissants: the most hilarious murder mystery since Richard Osman's The Thursday Murder Club

Valérie d’Orçay has hotfooted it from Paris with chihuahua in tow and an invitation to a Christmas murder hunt game. The bad bit is that he has to dress up as Father Christmas. But worse, he soon realises, this isn't a game at all.
As other guests arrive to join the hunt, can Richard work out who is the victim - and who is the guilty one?
A short, entertaining mystery set in rural France, by TV/radio regular and bestselling author Ian Moore – perfect for fans of Richard Osman's The Thursday Murder Club, Julia Chapman, or M.C. Beaton.
THIS IS A SHORT STORY
Tired of being unable to park anywhere near his cramped house in a noisy town he doesn’t like, he hatches a plan to move his wife and young son to a remote corner of the Loire Valley in search of serenity and space.
Several years later, Ian finds himself up to his neck in bilingual offspring, feral cats, promiscuous horses, dysfunctional spaniels and needy hens; he’s wrestling with electric fences, a foreign language, a mountain of animal waste and a wife who collects livestock like there’s a biblical flood on the horizon, all while trying not to dirty his loafers.
But despite the ups, downs and increasing demands of Ian’s showbiz career, the Moore family persevere in true Brit style to create a unique, colourful and ultimately rewarding life in their new home – à la campagne and à la mod!
