also got a mention last week on the Criminal Brief blog, along with the 18 other authors from across the U.S. and Canada who donated short stories to this year's mystery anthology for the Toys for Tots Foundation. The book, "The Gift of Murder
," contains nineteen stories of crimes occurring during Christmas, Chanukah and Kwanzaa, and some of the stories even combine all three holidays. All profits go to the Toys for Tots Foundation and there is no worthier cause. Rather than give you a big long pitch for owning a copy, I'll ask you to read the Criminal Brief blog!
