Dodo is invited to meet Rupert's family for Christmas. What could possibly go wrong? Fresh off the trauma of her last case, Dodo is relieved when Rupert suggests spending Christmas with his family at Knightsbrooke Priory. The week begins with such promise until Rupert's grandmother, Adelaide, dies in the middle of their Christmas Eve dinner. She is ninety-five years old and the whole family considers it an untimely natural death, but something seems off to Dodo who uses the moment of shock to take a quick inventory of the body. Certain clues bring her to draw the conclusion that Adelaide has been murdered, but this news is not taken well. With multiple family skeletons set rattling in the closets, the festive week of celebrations goes rapidly downhill and Dodo fears that Rupert's family will not forgive her meddling. Can she solve the case and win back their approval?

Mark Fuhrman, best-selling author of Murder in Brentwood, explores this fine line, revealing new and shocking details on such high-profile cases as Jon Benet Ramsey, Martha Moxley and Chandra Levy.
