  • not a fast read but the outcome is worth it

    I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. First of all, I would like to say that as excited as I was about this book, (Christmas and Killings), it did not hold my interest and I found myself only being able to read a chapter or two at a time. I don't know if that is specifically the book, or if it was me, so I cannot honestly say if this is a fast-paced or a very slow book. What I will say is that once I buckled down and read more than a couple chapters at a time, I did enjoy it. DI James Walker and his wife Annie move back to her hometown, a small village in northern England. DI Walker receives a Christmas card stating that there will be one murdered villager, who deserves to die, for each of the twelve days of Christmas. DI Walker and his team try to find the murderer, amidst a blizzard that cuts them off from the rest of civilization. If you find yourself bizarrely struggling like I did, do stick with it, it is worth the outcome. This is the first book in a new series.

  • A promising new series!

    The DI James Walker series is off to a very promising start in Alex Pine's The Christmas Killer. It certainly is a worthy addition to the previous mystery stories centered around the holiday season. I appreciated the focus on the police investigations and the demands placed upon the investigative team. The hunt for a serial killer is never easy and this is even more so when a small village realizes it's one of their own. In a nice touch, Pine describes the moments of the crimes through the eyes of the victims. Walker has a good team to work with and there is the potential to build a strong supporting cast like we see in the DCI Banks books from Peter Robinson. The Christmas Killer is a slow-build but it will keep you turning the page. Thank you to Avon Books and NetGalley for the advanced reading copy.

  • Snowy Goodness

    Who doesn’t love a snowed in murder mystery set at Christmas? Here is a good one to get you through some of these cold nights. DI James Walker has moved from the big city to village life in Kendal. Coming home one night he finds a package that he thinks is a present and gets a gross surprise instead. There’s also a card inside saying that 12 people will be killed in 12 Days. Can he find the killer before all of these people die? Oh and did I mention that there is a blizzard coming? There are lots of twists and turns in this wonderful whodunit. This is a very atmospheric read. And I recommend it. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book that I received from NetGalley. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

  • Easy Xmas reading

    This was an easy read book, with some interesting plot turns. It doesn't capture you until late in, and then because you want to discover who the killer is. Enjoyable story, but frustrating loose ends.
