Truly fine entertainment. (Publishers Weekly)
As always, Ms. Robb has done well. Murder again ensues. This time the victims answer their doors to find a jolly Santa bringing them gifts. But what a horrible gift death makes. Each victim is supposed to be Santa's true love, as in the Twelve Days of Christmas song, the first getting a bauble containing a partridge in a pear tree. Lieutenant Eve Dallas is the primary, and as always she is diligent in her job. She finds the connection between the victims is that they have all been patrons of the same dating agency. Is one of the owners, a twin brother and sister, the murderer? What kind of sick agency do they run? Eve will always find the truth -- and Robb will keep you in suspense.
