(From the publisher):
It's Christmas in Cambridge - time for the annual Christmas Revels, held each year at Harvard's Memorial Hall - a festival of dance and drama that harks back to ancient midwinter rituals and incantations to drive away the fearful gloom of winter. Like whistling to keep up one's spirits, it's a tradition to send out the old year of darkness and revive the light. But this year, amid the stomp and jingle of Morris dancers, gallant Saint George isn't the only one who gets slain.
