Overview

There is no joy on Christmas Eve in Houston in 2001. On November 29, the mighty Enron corporation collapsed in an explosion of fraud, scandal and chicanery. Ben Scroggs has no use for his fellow man, or woman, or the Christmas season, but he was just an accountant, an isolated, lonely man.

Editorial Reviews

Mystery Roundup - Ann O'Neemuss
"Now, today’s masters of mystery [offer] new stories inspired by Dickens and his immortal classics... Three spirits visit a modern-day Scrooge to save his soul—and solve a murder—in Carole Nelson Douglas’ ‘A Cyber Christmas Carol.’”
Victorian Mysteries - Anne Perry
~
“‘Scrogged: A Cyber Christmas Carol’ by Carole Nelson Douglas has the same upbeat feeling to it, but the flavor is modern, tongue-in-cheek, and rips along at a wonderful speed. The ghosts are superbly inventive, all the elements are there, and the moral message is just as clear and as timeless. And of course it, too, has a very present-day murder solved by skillful detection.”
RT Book Reviews - Toby Bromberg
“notable reads include… a retelling, with sly winks to contemporary society, of Dickens’ beloved holiday story (‘Scrogged: A Cyber Christmas Carol’ by Carole Nelson Douglas.)”
