A gritty-but-heart-warming Christmas tale!
Known for his post-apocalyptic military thrillers, D.J. Molles has crossed genres with this modern day Santa story that’s a healthy dose of holiday murder mystery with a sprinkle of Christmas magic.
—————–SANTA IS DEAD.
Santa’s helpers don’t always dispose of bodies, but that’s what Tucker Smith is doing right now.
He just found his boss, Nick—the Santa for Charlotte, North Carolina—murdered in an apparent random act of violence. A former cop, Tucker is overcome with an intense need to find out who did this to Nick, and why.
Luckily, The Organization–a philanthropic group with branches in cities across the world–quickly sent a replacement Santa, but he requires training.
Somehow Tucker has to manage to deliver Christmas to his assigned region, train the new Santa, and uncover the mystery of who killed Nick, all while he struggles to patch things up with his crumbling family.
…And there are only 5 days left until Christmas.
“A Christmas story that, if/when made into a film, will supplant James Stewart’s It’s a Wonderful Life AND Bruce Willis’ Die Hard.” -Amazon Reviewer
“This book came into my life at a time when darkness was snuffing out the light. It ignited a new hope. A story of loss and hardship but…of magic as well.” – Amazon reviewer
“I am not one to have much Christmas spirit. I bah humbug like the Grinch and don’t really enjoy the holidays. Mr. Molles wrote an exciting Christmas story that really speaks to me.” -Amazon Reviewer
