Pericles "Perry" Christo is a P.I. with a past. A one-time NYPD homicide cop, Perry has been struggling since he lost his badge, and his marriage, in a notorious corruption scandal. So when wealthy Upper East Side matron Julia Drusilla calls him one cold February night, he jumps at the chance to work what seems to be a straightforward (and lucrative) case. Julia needs Perry to track down the whereabouts of her beautiful yet aimless daughter, Angelina, who is about to become a very wealthy young heiress.

The continuity between the authors was excellent. The differences in their storytelling from chapter to chapter was interesting. The story did not lose anything by the changes because all did their part in continuing the flow very well. The clues given during the story made the ending almost but not completely predictable. It's the almost that kept it interesting until the very end.

Let’s face it - the holidays can bring out the beast in anyone. They are particularly hard if you’re a lycanthrope. Charlaine Harris and Toni L. P. Kelner have harvested the scariest, funniest, saddest werewolf tales, by an outstanding pack of authors, best heard by the light of a full moon and with a silver bullet close at hand.

This book has a nice variety of werewolf related holiday stories. I really enjoyed listening to it and think that I will make listening to it a yearly event for awhile.

This was a really fun listen. I liked some of the stories better than others, but did not really dislike any of them. This was a perfect October pre-Halloween listen because it had things that go bmp in the night plus the things that make them go bump running away in fear,.
