A mystery story about a grown man, an attorney, alone on Christmas Eve, who can’t allow himself to believe in Santa Claus. But someone keeps eating the cookies. Every year. Just like it happened when he was a kid. Maybe Santa Claus really does exist. Or maybe, just maybe, all this skeptic needs to understand is where the jolly fat man lives.
Bestselling author Dean Wesley Smith has sold over ninety novels and hundreds of short stories in many genres, including science fiction, fantasy, and mystery. He had another Christmas mystery story in Ellery Queen Magazine a few years back.
