Crimes Against Christmas

Crimes Against Christmas is a good old-fashioned, grown-up antidote to the traditional family pantomime. It’s a delightful, fast-moving feast of Christmas-themed, murderous fun. Take Agatha Christie’s classic thriller And Then There Were None, recast it in a 12 Days of Christmas mould and you get the idea. Pete Artridge, penniless, down on his luck is tasked by a shadowy visitor to his detective agency with preventing the theft of a priceless Christmas bauble. He joins a group of strangers, mysteriously invited to spend the festive holiday on a remote island. They soon begin to meet their fates in increasingly quick succession and suspiciously Yule-related ways!
