Publisher's Summary

First story in a collection of interlinked tales of crime and retribution laced with dark humour, set around the festive season. Billy Partridge wasn’t really cut out to be a cat burglar, but it was ‘do the job, or come up with thirteen grand by Thursday, or have both legs shattered’.‘Do the job’ seemed the least worst option. But he’s about to find out just how bad the least worst option can be…

Bad ending

What would have made Twelve Days of Winter: Crime at Christmas - A Partridge in a Pear Tree better?

A better ending.

Would you ever listen to anything by Stuart MacBride again?

The collection was a bit choppy. If the next was less choppy and easier in some places to follow it would be better. Since my wife is from Glasgow the accent and the ideas were good but I think the presentation of the plot needed help.

Which scene was your favorite?

Pear Tree. First chapter.
