Wonderful Release in Time for Christmas by author Val Penny

by Soulla Christodoulou

If you’re looking for a suspenseful thriller read this Christmas then look no further than Val Penny’s new collection of short stories.

DI Hunter Wilson is looking forward to spending a holiday in India with his girlfriend Dr Meera Sharma, away from the cold, wet winter of Edinburgh. He looks to share his happiness with others when he is attacked by Santa Claus, he says.

His team swing into action to catch his attackers but then receive information about an elf found dead in a car park and a car stolen by Mrs Claus.

Are the crimes by these Christmas characters connected?

Can Hunter’s team restore peace and good will to Christmas?

“Hunter’s Christmas and Other Stories includes tales about DI Hunter Wilson and DS Jane Renwick along with those about new and different characters in this gripping collection of short stories especially for crime fiction readers.”


Val Penny, who I have been friends with across social media for a number of years has been a wonderfully supportive author friend to me and supports the writing and reading community in so many aways.

Val’s Bio:
