The colored lights on the snow gave it a holiday appearance, but the dead woman's body in the yard added a grisly touch. How did Ina Bell Patrick die? Who killed her? And why? The dead woman had no direct heirs, so two nephews and a niece stood to inherit. Dr. Laura Morris was left to make all the arrangements, attorney Roger Morris could certainly use the money, and Zack Morris had disappeared two years earlier. Then there was neighbor and "best friend" Fay Autrey, who was certain the woman intended to leave her some money - a great deal of money. The police were still looking for the killer who left the frozen body in the snow when it became apparent someone was trying to pick off the heirs, one by one. Who would win the race - the police or the killer?

I am at that half a century mark in years. I enjoy audiobooks,cats,rats and most days my family,not necessarily in that order!lol
This was very good.It had good writing and Meghan Kelly was a great narrator.My only isue was that it was a short story and that there was a lot of repetition.We did not need to hear the same descriptions of the main characters stating that her family was suspect every few sentences.Overall ,it was a good read!I was given this book free for an honest review.

For such a short audio this had a LOT packed in, and still felt like a really full story. There were a good amount of characters introduced, as well as enough back story on each to really understand their relationships & develop an bond do to speak. The mystery itself is two fold & had many unexpected plot twists which I genuinely did not see coming! There is a lot to keep you guessing every step of the way. Never a dull moment. Everything about the story also felt plausible. It was well written & never felt outlandish, which I appreciate as a reader.
As a fan of Grey's Anatomy I also really loved the added touch of some medical stories woven in. It's just a bit here & there, but it was enough to make it unique. I've never read any books from this author before, but I'm officially intrigued! Although the narrator could be a bit monotone sometimes, I actually enjoyed that aspect. She narrated very crisp & clear and let the plot do the talking without getting too narrated & taking anything away from the story. I was gifted this book in exchange for an honest review.
Great mystery! Truly inspired narration plus a great story makes this a fantastic listen! Can't wait to download the next in series!

I'm a full-time carer for a family member. When i'm not busy or walking my dog, i'm reading, usually thrillers, but I do read other genres
Atmospheric, Suspenseful, Interesting.
This book compared favorably with other medical themed thrillers.
Narrator Meghan Kelly projects just the right atmosphere and tension to this novella.
This book was enjoyable, and made me feel good.
I really enjoyed listening to Silent Night, Deadly Night, and i'd love to listen to more of Richard Mabry's books, and books narrated by Meghan Kelly.

Silent Night, Deadly Night by Richard Mabry is another chilling mystery. A body found frozen in the snow begins the search for the killer. Is it the heirs? A robber? With a few twists and turns to the plot, the author keeps readers in suspense the whole way to the end. Although not the usual medical thriller one expects from Mabry, there are a couple of physicians in the house! The characters are likable and believable and the story moves quickly to a satisfactory finish with a wee surprise at the end. Set during the Christmas/New Year season, this whodunit novella is a quick read for those who like mysteries. The audiobook is narrated by Meghan Kelly who does a marvelous job giving voice to each character, which makes for an enjoyable listening experience
I received a copy of the audiobook from the author. A favorable review was not required and opinions are my own.
I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher. This was a very good book. I was kind of surprised actually. It didn't go in the direction that I thought it would and there was a twist towards the end that worked out well. Definitely worth the time to listen. Good story line, easy to follow, and maintained my interest throughout.
Even though this is a short story, it was full of characters and suspense. I would have really enjoyed the book to be longer...I didn't want it to end. The narrator did a great job.

Ms. Kelly does a great job with narrating overall, particularly the female parts. The narration of the male characters could've been better - they sounded bored most of the time. The story was a good listen - short, but engrossing!
This is a great story and fun to listen to. I think the reader had some trouble with the voices, but kudos for trying to make them sound different. That's not easy to do.
