A Christmas EscapeBook - 2015
On the Mediterranean island of Stromboli, lonely Charles Latterly arrives at his small hotel hoping that the island's blue skies and gentle breezes will brighten his spirits. Unfortunately, there's no holiday cheer to be found among his fellow guests, who include a pompous novelist, a stuffy colonel, a dangerously ill-matched married couple, and an ailing old man. The tranquility of the holiday is swiftly disrupted by a violent quarrel, an unpleasant gentleman's claims of being stalked, and the ominous stirrings of the local volcano. When a body is found, Charles quickly realizes that the killer must be among the group of guests.
