Format: Paperback
Thomas Altman, a pseudonym used by thriller wiz Campbell Armstrong, spares no expenses of his savoir-faire for this grade-B type of a novella about Christmas and the killer that roams a small town. Using a strong narrative and solid characterization, Altman creates an atmospheric tale that has a "Halloween/Friday the 13th" flavor to its overall delivery. As the title proclaims, BLACK CHRISTMAS is indeed a dark read; a sense of dread does stay ever so present as the reader gets caught up into the life of this troubled sheriff faced with a bloody Holiday season. The plot never ever looses steam, even when the culprit becomes more and more evident as the story progresses. But is it really who we think it is? That's what makes BLACK CHRISTMAS so much fun and a notch above these so-called horror/mystery/suspense sub-genres concocted into one novel. You'll definitely want to revisit Altman's turf once finished with this gem. This reviewer sure will.-----Martin Boucher

This story is a pure whodunit. Definite page-turner.I enjoyed it start to finish. If you love slasher flicks,you'll love this book! Not for the squeamish.

I went into this book believing this was a horror novel; it's usually how the book is categorized. It's not actually a Horror novel; It's a Mystery loomed around the X-mas season. As for my personal taste; it was just OK

Format: Paperback
i finished this book fater than most. It's a story about a cop, his dughter and wife. There is a girl murdered at the very beginning, and plenty of suspect to look at. You may think you know who it is but then won't figure it until like 3/4 way through. Even though you find out who the murderer is, it still does a really good job of not letting you no what is going on uless it it essential to the story. Eveything comes together at the end, no tan original ending but the kind that i look more than the other.
