Spotlight - A Christmas Party

I'd like to shine a spotlight on A Christmas Party by Georgette Heyer. Originally published in 1941 as Envious Casca, this book is now being marketed as "A Seasonal Murder Mystery".

From the back cover:

'Tis the season-for murder...

A colorful assortment of guests at a festive holiday house party discover there is a killer in their midst when their universally reviled host is found dead-in a room locked from th einside.

For Inspector Heminway of Scotland Yard, the investigation is complicated by the fact that every guest is hiding something, throwing all their testimony into question and casting suspicion far and wide. The clever and daring crime will mystify readers, yet the answer is in plain sight all along...
