The Santa Klaus Murder; Mavis Doriel Hay

The Santa Klaus MurderThe Santa Klaus Murder by Mavis Doriel Hay
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Another of the Golden Age yet forgotten mysteries being returned to the public by Poisoned Press. The writing is very much of its time, and the locked-room device works well here. Having multiple narrators was, at first, a bit annoying but then made sense; as far as the whodunnit part goes, it's clear from the start that the lost Santa Klaus suit will come into play, but it isn't absolutely clear until the end who or why. Which, for those who know me, is a good thing.
