Yet as these stories imagine there is no holiday period for detectives as this wonderful time of year throws up additional opportunities to commit crime. Innocent people are being killed via poison that has been injected into various items they picked up at their local supermarket. AllThatSheCarried by Tiya Miles is an eye-opening social history of love and resilience, and an insightful testament to the people who are left out of the archives. Though Father Brown sees through his lies and discovered that the brother isn’t the made he says he is; he is the adopted son, and the body is of the last brother he killed earlier, and has be pretending to be him the whole time.

The detective soon works out that it would have to be her cousin, who is a gymnast; he used her slippers and hand walked over to the lady's house and used the hedge to push himself up.This one I didn’t like as much, it was a story within a story, slow and didn’t really capture my attention. At the beginning I thought it was too much of the English countryside, but then it offered different atmospheres.

However, just because many of the others are quite short doesn't mean that they fail as stories, just that they tend to focus on a relatively small element of the 'how could that have happened? This one is a story in a story about magical painting, one of four that correspond with the seasons. I was also missing some form of symbolism or higher literary meaning, which the likes of Dostoevsky and Wilde manage to incorporate so superbly in their own short stories.

My favourite was "The Trinity Cat" by Ellis Peters and I also enjoyed the ones by Ian Rankin, Val McDermid and Laurence Block. A Wife in A Million by Val McDermid- in which a disgruntled wife is, instead of handing out holiday cheer, out slipping a little arsenic into grocery items and DS Maggie Staniforth is on the case and dealing with her own disgruntled wife.

She soon though starts to recale going outside into the snow, and remembers the snowglobe in the house of her attacked neighbour. Christmas is just around the corner, but DON’T PANIC: we’re here to provide you with the ultimate festive gifting inspiration, and remind you that books are certainly the easiest presents to wrap…!It’s Christmas Eve on the snowy cobbled streets of Victorian London, Suddenly, a scream deep within one of the tenement houses!
