’Tis the season for a pair of Christmas novels that add a dash of murder to the Yuletide spirit.

A CHRISTMAS HOMECOMING
 
“Could have been devised by Agatha Christie . . . [Anne Perry is] a modern master.”—Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

In an alien world haunted by massacre, he is the accused man’s only hope.
Anne Perry is the bestselling author of twelve holiday novels—A New York Christmas, A Christmas Hope, A Christmas Garland, A Christmas Homecoming, A Christmas Odyssey, A Christmas Promise, A Christmas Grace, A Christmas Beginning, A Christmas Secret, A Christmas Guest, A Christmas Visitor, and A Christmas Journey—as well as the William...
