    This early work by S. S. Van Dine was originally published in 1939 and we are now republishing it with a brand new introduction. 'The Winter Murder Case' is one of Van Dine's novels of crime and mystery. S. S. Van Dine was born Willard Huntington Wright in Charlottesville, Virginia in 1888. He attended St. Vincent College, Pomona College and Harvard University, but failed to graduate, leaving to cultivate contacts he had made in the literary world. At the age of twenty-one, Wright began his professional writing career as literary editor of the Los Angeles Times. In 1926, Wright published his first S. S. Van Dine novel, The Benson Murder Case. Wright went on to write eleven more mysteries. The first few books about his upper-class amateur sleuth, Philo Vance, were so popular that Wright became wealthy for the first time in his life. His later books declined in popularity as the reading public's tastes in mystery fiction changed, but during the late twenties and early thirties his work was very successful.

    Gregori Markovic recently became the head of the Russian family that rules London’s criminal underworld. Aged in his mid-thirties some considered him too young for the position. Not any more, he has already been tried and tested, and more than proved himself worthy.

    Suspicious of Gregori Markovic’s involvement in her sister’s death, Gaia hadn’t expected him to be quite as devastatingly handsome or so powerfully imposing. Or to find herself irresistibly drawn to the sharp edge of danger that surrounds him. 
     
    As different as night and day, and with so many secrets standing between them, the two nevertheless can’t seem to stay away from each other, or to resist every opportunity to explore the depths of that attraction. Wherever that passion might take them. 
     
    But Gregori has already made enemies, one powerful enemy in particular. A man who will stop at nothing to make Gregori suffer in the same way he’s suffered, by taking someone from him that he cares about. He sees Gregori’s deepening involvement with Gaia Miller as the perfect way to exact that revenge. 
     
    Author Note—the novellas and full-length novels in the ALPHA series have sexier situations and stronger language than my other books.
