“Down these mean streets a man must go who is not himself mean…and who wears jingle bells on his curly-toed shoes and stands about two-foot three. A man who is, in other words, an elf. But don’t let the green tights and stocking cap fool you: Gumdrop Coal is the roughest, toughest punisher of the naughty since Mike Hammer, even if he does smell like peppermint and fresh-baked cookies.”
New York Times bestselling author Steve Hockensmith (Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls) “Noir and Christmas go together like Santa and his reindeer in this stylish elf fable by Ken Harmon, a newcomer who knows noir like he apprenticed with Hammett. An excellent stocking stuffer for the mystery lover in your family.”
New York Times bestselling author John Lescroart “This is one of those wonderful books where I hit my forehead and cry, “Why didn’t I think of that?”. As I read I kept hoping it wasn’t as brilliant as I feared – but it is. It’s the “Naughty List” for you, if you don’t buy this book for Christmas!”
-Louise Penny, New York Times bestselling author of A Brutal Telling
