It's the Twelve Days of Christmas: It's Not Just a Carol Anymore
by Mona New-Gardner
Christmas day starts off slow, but picks up when a female victim is found in a tree. The woman turns out to be Aimee Partridge, the secretary at Detective Monica Newsome’s church.
On the second day Detective Newsome and her partner Detective Rich Garson are called to the scene of another murder in a bowling alley. They found two white females hanging from the ceiling in a crab position. Both are on the bowling league team named the “Turtle Doves.”
The task force begins to see the pattern: they have a serial killer on their hands, based on the timeline and the lyrics to “The 12 Days of Christmas.” Detective Newsome is concerned because it looks as if all the evidence leads back to the priest at her church and the nun.
Will she be able to catch the killer before he reaches the last day?
