From Derringer Award winner BV Lawson comes four short tales of mirth, murder and mayhem:
A shopping mall Christmas elf with revenge on his mind;
A young man whose day goes from bad to worse when his car is rear-ended by the mayor's wife, and police find a skeleton in his trunk;
A private eye's blackmail case that takes him to a costume party and too many Abraham Lincolns;
And little Sammy Spade wreaking havoc at summer camp.
