When Phryne, Dot,Mac and Aunt Prudence decide to spend Christmas in July at the chalet of some friends do not know who will be embroiled in the umpteenth crime. The murderess kills its victims - tenants and guests of chalet- following the lyrics of a famous Christmas song, leaving as warning a Christmas card in the room of the victim. We will discover that behind the heinous crimes are hidden secrets about the past of Aunt Prudence and the tragic death of miners. Jack Robinson is also coming to the rescue of Phryne...

Cold OpenEdit

The Twelve Days of Christmas plays on a phonograph. Len Fowler is trying to get the pear-shaped lights on the Christmas tree to light up. He turns off the electricity to the string and starts fiddling with them. Someone turns the power back on, and Fowler is electrocuted.


Mac: This is a holiday. Must you find murder everywhere?
Phryne: Mac, you know very well murder finds me.

Jack: Stay close!
