Not even a blizzard can keep Rex Graves away from Swanmere Manor, a historic hotel in East Sussex. But instead of Christmas cheer, the red-haired Scottish barrister finds a dead guest. Was it a stroke that killed old Mr. Lawry? Or an almond tart laced with poison? When more guests die, all hopes for a jolly holiday are dashed. Worst of all, the remote mansion is buried under beastly snow. No one can leave. Confined with a killer, no one can enjoy their tea without suspicion and scrutiny. Rex takes it upon himself to solve the mystery, but the most intriguing evidence - a burnt biography of President George W. Bush - offers few clues. Could the killer be the sherry-swilling handyman? The gay antiques dealer with a biting wit? The quarrelling newlyweds? Surely, it's not Helen D'arcy, the lovely lass Rex seems to be falling for.
