As her college student clientele drift home for the holidays, and her somewhat self-involved daughter learns the difficulty of holding down a job, bookseller/sometime sleuth Claire Malloy resigns herself to another run-of-the-mill Christmas. As a diversion, she accepts an invitation from an eccentric customer to attend the local Druid winter solstice celebration. The celebration is short-lived, however, when the group's benefactor is found murdered! With a group of dissatisfied Druids under suspicion, and her daughter facing an unwarranted lawsuit, can Claire get the whole mess wrapped up in time for Christmas?
