The only thing "Christmas-y" about it is that it's set around Christmas time. Not at all what I was expecting, and I was really disappointed with this one. This one did nothing for me. Hope his other works are better. Crime at Christmas Una lettura natalizia alternativa.

MacBride is so great. May 17, Richard Burrage rated it liked it. I like Stuart MacBride's writing style. In my mind it is reminiscent of a slightly nasty Ian Rankin. The stories were all pretty good and one or two were a little better than that. Mar 18, Angela Verdenius rated it it was amazing. Interwoven short crime stories set at Christmas time. Almost like watching a subtle domino effect!!! Dec 17, Alison rated it really liked it Shelves: Ovviamente non tutte le storie sono allo stesso livello. Le mie preferite sono: I racconti sono tutti ambientati nel periodo che precede il Natale, ma non hanno assolutamente nulla di natalizio, anzi!
The stories are rough and brutal, but sometimes funny. I liked how in the end are all linked. Women are absolutely just possible to be sexualiced in one way or another, no other way they could act or better be acted on. Dec 26, Sarah Baines rated it really liked it. Not my favourite Stuart Macbride but definitely worth a read.
Sep 09, Barbra rated it liked it. I read it but it really was a no-brainer. Nov 25, Glenda rated it really liked it. Extremely noir and very cleverly constructed.
