PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS A SHORT STORY OF APPROXIMATELY 8000 WORDS. IT IS NOT A FULL LENGTH NOVEL.
The last person Detective Sergeant Kate Redman wants to see while she's doing her Christmas shopping is habitual petty thief and homeless alcoholic Charlie Petworth. While she knows that Charlie steals small things in part to get a warm bed for the night, it's still annoying, particularly in the season of good will.
Then a far more serious crime occurs and Kate realises that Charlie might well be involved. But why would he go from stealing a packet of flower seeds to stealing a little toddler? And is there more to this case than at first meets the eye?
A short story written especially for fans of the Kate Redman Mysteries, this short, seasonal mystery is from crime writer Celina Grace, author of the Kate Redman Mysteries, The Asharton Manor Mysteries and the upcoming historical mystery series, Miss Hart and Miss Hunter Investigate.

I really like the characters in the book and the story line. The only thing I was disappointed in was the length. Yes it was a short story but it seemed as if the story had more ti reveal but then it needed.
A great story before bed even if it's not the holidays! Celina Grace captures your attention and keeps it with well written stories that keep your mind occupied until the story ends with great details and events that unfold with excitement and grit.
