ROSE RED RHYMES 2 ~ The Night Before Christmas

Christmas comes but once a year, and no-one is more thankful than DCI Cass “Red” Rose.

With no major cases on her desk on Christmas Eve morning it seems Red can finish her shift and go Christmas shopping like any normal person.

But life is never straight-forward where Red is concerned. And when a police officer from her own station, dressed as Santa, has to be arrested in the toy store where Red is due to meet Grandma and Ruby, it seems to Red like she’s never off duty. And that’s before the drunken yobs on the next floor start smashing the place up.

Then there’s the small matter of staying up to welcome Santa’s little helpers.  Fortunately she has some little elves of her own to lend a hand.
Both only 99c/99p!
