A Christmas Revelation by Anne Perry (Hardcover)

“Perry’s Victorian-era holiday mysteries [are] an annual treat.”—The Wall Street Journal

In this uplifting holiday mystery from New York Times bestselling author Anne Perry, an orphan boy investigates a woman’s kidnapping—and discovers there’s more at stake than a disappearance.

It wouldn’t quite be Christmas without a holiday mystery decorated with all the Victorian trimmings. Now the tradition continues as mayhem is once again found under the mistletoe. And intrigue stalks the cobblestone streets old London Town.

Formerly a river urchin living on the banks of the Thames, nine-year-old Worm has never experienced a family Christmas. But thanks to a job at Hester Monk’s clinic, he’s found a makeshift family in Miss Claudine Burroughs and old Squeaky Robinson.

When Worm witnesses the abduction of a beautiful woman by a pair of ruffians, he frantically turns to Squeaky for help. A one-time brothel owner, Squeaky knows the perils of interfering in nasty business. But he can’t bear to disappoint Worm—or leave the boy to attempt a rescue on his own.

What neither expects, however, is that the damsel in distress already has her dilemma well in hand. And she is taking steps to bring her captors to justice for crimes far worse than kidnapping. But the rogues, as cunning as they are deadly, are not to be underestimated. The aid of cynical old Squeaky and hopeful young Worm just might make the difference between a merry triumph over evil and a terrible yuletide tragedy.
