Christmas is supposed to be a joyful time of year, but it’s anything but that for P.I. Billie Bly.
She has five days to find a seven-year-old Stephanie’s missing mother and the local business association demands she track down missing Christmas statues which are disappearing at an alarming rate.
Why would anybody steal life-size Santa and Snowmen statues bolted to the sidewalk? And how could the girl’s mother drop out of sight on a five-block walk home?
Her biggest problem, however, is how to solve these cases without help from her assistant’s loopy boyfriend.
