A second collection of short stories from P.D. James. Six further stories are published together for the first time in a beautiful hardback edition.

As a companion volume to The Mistletoe Murder and Other Stories, a further six of P. D. James's ingenious short stories are published here together for the first time.

As the six murderous tales unfold, the dark motive of revenge is revealed at the heart of each. Bullying schoolmasters receive their comeuppance, unhappy marriages and childhoods are avenged, a murder in the small hours of Christmas Day puts an end to the vicious new lord of the manor, and, from the safety of his nursing home, an octogenarian exerts exquisite retribution.

The punishments inflicted on the guilty are fittingly severe, but here they are meted out by the unseen forces of natural justice rather than the institutions of the law. Once again, P. D. James shows her expert control of the short-story form, conjuring motives and scenarios with complete conviction, and each with a satisfying twist in the tail.

    So pleased to find a P.D. James after so long. I am a lover of short stories for bedtime reading
    and this collection made it impossible for me to turn off the light after just the one. With the frst story, "The Yo Yo", I knew I was in for a treat and so it proved to be.
