Steve isn’t celebrating Christmas… he’s trying to survive it.
When blind PI Steve Smiley’s partner secures an invitation for them to teach at a mystery writers’ conference, what promises to be a welcome December escape turns into a tidal wave of mysteries to solve.
Steve and Heather walk into the midst of a raging civil war between two factions of the writers’ group. When they agree to locate a missing author slated to be the next organization president, they find themselves plunged into the midst of the battle. Before they can solve that mystery, another one lands at their feet, along with a dead body.
With Steve’s reputation on the line, he and Heather make a plan to unravel the mysteries and expose the murderer. But the killer has a plan too. Steve’s no longer worried about enduring another lonely Christmas… this year he just wants to survive it.
