Publisher Description

Christmas is hot.

When Kandi's dad gets a mysterious call, they fly to a tropical island where the buildings are enormous and the rooms empty. Despite the heat, his sunburned client wears a heavy cloak.

Kandi meets a boy living all alone in one of the empty resorts. When he goes missing, she enlists the help of the technological wonders that haunt the island to find him. What she uncovers is a much deeper mystery that will affect more than just Christmas. The world doesn't know it yet, but Santa Claus is missing. Kandi knows where he is.

And why.

Ex Wordfeud Junkie ,

Christmas keeps getting better with this stand alone series!

You know how most author newsletters ask who your favorite author is? Tony has always been the first name typed since I was introduced to his work. (It used to be Scott Seigler, different genre author.)

There are retellings and back stories and then there are •masterpieces• Tony's books are a work of stellar creativity, science fiction, sound plots, and characters that ROCK.

This holiday book takes us to an island with an incredible new character as we delve into another chapter of his incredible imagination.

Science fiction is flawed when a reader gets lost or the plots are convoluted. The Rise of the Miser will whisk you away and time will slip by without you noticing!

I picked up most of his books and/or the audiobooks and this ranks on the same scale, as highly recommendable!

There was a time when I had other reasons to look forward to the holidays. On my journey to becoming an empty nester, Tony's editions is the ultimate pinnacle.

You can read this book first. If you like it, go back and pick up his other four stand alones! If you don't like it, I'd be VERY surprised.

A Twisted Holiday Tale

This was a seriously great story. I loved the futuristic integration of technology. I loved the characters, they were extremely well developed. I seriously recommend this book!
