Summary

A collection of interlinked tales of crime and retribution laced with dark humour, set around the festive season – from the No. 1 bestseller Stuart MacBrideOn the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me… 
Twelve days, twelve stories. 
Meet Fat Billy Partridge, possibly the worst cat-burglar ever; newbie drug-dealer Brian, who probably shouldn’t be taking advantage of the job’s fringe benefits; Philippe, a chef with anger-management issues and lots of very sharp knives; Mr Unwin, the undertaker with the golden touch; and Lord Peter Forsyth-Leven, MSP, learning the hard way that having it all means you’ve got so much more to lose… 
Thieves, drug dealers, lap-dancers, gangsters and even the odd good guy populate these twelve interlinked tales of crime and retribution set around the festive season. 
Stuart MacBride, the Sunday Times bestselling author, brings his unique blend of black humour and mystery to the fore in this collection of hard-boiled thrillers. His distinctive voice and top-notch storytelling make this a must-read for fans of detective fiction. 
For fans of Ian Rankin (Standing in Another Man's Grave), Mark Billingham (The Last Dance), and Michael Connelly (The Dark Hours).
