A yuletide tradition turns deadly...
It’s Christmas in St. Jude Without, Newfoundland, the season when pagan roots creep through the thin veil of civilization, and chaos reigns. A series of murders in the area cause Carmel and Inspector Darrow to be thrown together again to stop this deadly purge.
This time the targets are local religious leaders. Carmel knows the village holds an ancient grudge against the Church, but that can’t explain the deaths of these men. As she investigates, she uncovers truths almost too awful to comprehend, but she has to push on for justice, no matter what her neighbors believe.
"Reminds me of a BBC mystery - brought to life in the new world!"
