Two of Mary Higgins Clark's most beloved characters, Alvirah, the lottery winner turned amateur sleuth, and her husband Willy, get caught up in a Christmas mystery that calls on all of Alvirah's deductive powers, as well as Willy's world-class common sense. When the story begins, Willy is looking forward to playing Santa Clause at the after-school center his sister Cordelia has established to care for the children of working parents on New York's upper West Side, while Alvirah is busy with rehearsals for the Christmas pageant. But suddenly a pall falls upon the Christmas cheer. The center itself is threatened with being closed down, a substitute that has been promised is withdrawn, a desperate young woman appears who begs for Alvirah's help in finding the baby she abandoned seven years earlier, and -- the final blow -- the little girl who is to play the Blessed Mother in the Christmas pageant vanishes. Alvirah is soon on the trail of the truth, which must be found before Christmas, which leads to the theft of a valued chalice that is somehow at the heart of the mystery. A missing chalice. A missing child. A desperate mother. Who but Alvirah can sort it out in time for Christmas?

Summary

A New York Times bestseller

Two of Mary Higgins Clark's most beloved characters, Alvirah, the lottery winner turned amateur sleuth, and her husband Willy, get caught up in a Christmas mystery that calls on all of Alvirah's deductive powers, as well as Willy's world-class common sense. When the story begins, Willy is looking forward to playing Santa Clause at the after-school center his sister Cordelia has established to care for the children of working parents on New York's upper West Side, while Alvirah is busy with rehearsals for the Christmas pageant.

But suddenly a pall falls upon the Christmas cheer. The center itself is threatened with being closed down, a substitute that has been promised is withdrawn, a desperate young woman appears who begs for Alvirah's help in finding the baby she abandoned seven years earlier, and -- the final blow -- the little girl who is to play the Blessed Mother in the Christmas pageant vanishes. Alvirah is soon on the trail of the truth, which must be found before Christmas, which leads to the theft of a valued chalice that is somehow at the heart of the mystery.

A missing chalice. A missing child. A desperate mother. Who but Alvirah can sort it out in time for Christmas?

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Concocting a satisfying Christmas mystery is as tricky as making a good eggnog: you want a jigger of low-proof danger to mix smoothly with a measure of sweet deliverance. Mary Higgins Clark has whipped up a potable brew.”  Wall Street Journal
“A consume-in-one sitting Christmas treat.”  USA Today
“A mystery that would be a pleasure to share aloud with a family gathered at the fireplace for some holiday cheer.”  Amazon.com, editorial review
“Bestseller Clark has written another Christmas seasonal mystery, and like Silent Night, it's a lighthearted suspense tale that her readers are sure to enjoy.”  Booklist
