4.0 out of 5 stars Reviewing: "Dying In a Winter Wonderland" November 2, 2008
In the interests of full disclosure, in addition to providing the occasional exclusive book review to Tony Burton for his CrimeandSuspense zine, I also submitted to this anthology. Again this year, one of my darkly twisted stories didn't make the cut. What did are cozy style stories that thematically often involve helping children and the less fortunate have a brighter holiday season.

Austin S. Camacho and his signature character "Hannibal" kick off the anthology with "A Mom for Christmas." Margarita is a little girl who only wants her mom to come home but the bad men at the club she works at won't let her. She sent her daughter to Hannibal to ask for help.

"The Alternate Plan" by Allan Ansorge involves two crooks who plan on taking the pot from a sidewalk Santa. Recently released early from prision and with nothing else to do but watch their target they soon realize that others are looking to score as well.

New Year's visits to the home of Gerritt van Wiesal and his wife are customary in "A Merry Slay Ride" by M. E. Kemp. But, normally a sleigh doesn't arrive with a dead body in it.

The traditions of Hanukah form the background of several stories in this anthology and are present here in "On the Sixth Night of Hanukah" by Helen Schwartz. Just after Christmas, a local police officer is helping provide security at a local temple. Open to the homeless, the temple has been vandalized by graphetti and the culprit could be anyone.

"Something Extra for Christmas" by Radine Trees Nehring recounts a simple trip to the mall that soon becomes a climatic life changing experience for all involved.

Frequent contributor Garry R. Hoffman's story "Gracie's Gift from the East" follows.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Gift for the Season January 2, 2009
I finished the delightful stories in DYING IN A WINTER WONDERLAND complied by Tony Burton on New Year's Eve. It was a wonderful place to spend the evening and equally intoxicating.
My special favorites were "A Merry Sleigh Ride" by M.E. Kemp and "The Longest Night" by S. M. Harding because of my own ancestors both Dutch and Scots for whom the new year was more important than the seasonal celebration.
Thank you to all the authors who contributed their talents to the third volume of Tony Burton's Toys for Tots anthology. We received a gift from you of significance and gave a gift in return.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dying In a Winter Wonderland October 2, 2008
I just finished this great collection of crime stories. The well written tales entertained and put me in the Christmas mood a little early.

The story titled, Just Call Me Nick, gave me a good chuckle. It's about two Santa's who meet with a delightful little twist to it. Each story is unique and offers a different look at crime and criminals during the holidays. All thirteen stories are enjoyable and well worth reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars HAPPY HOMICIDES! October 22, 2008
I haven't had time to read all the stories in this book yet, but the ones I've read are excellent. I especially like the idea that it donates profits to Toys for Tots. All the authors donated their stories, too. Marilyn Rothstein
