For the fourth year, generous authors have graciously contributed their time, efforts and creativity to raise money for a very worthy effort-making children happy. This year, nineteen talented authors and one very talented editor have put their skills together and produced a very remarkable book.
Wolfmont's 2008 anthology for Toys for Tots was an Independent Mystery Booksellers Association Top Ten Bestseller for 2008, and the only small press title in the list.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Having bought the two preceding books in this annual series, I was lucky enough to receive a review copy from the publisher this year. That means I'm duty bound to find a Toys for Tots collection somewhere to contribute to, since proceeds from this anthology go to support this worthy charity. It would be well worth buying even if that were not the case, since the collection of Christmas-themed mystery stories has something for everyone. Protagonists include an elf, an angel, and Mrs. Santa as well as the usual police, amateur sleuths, and first-person criminals that one usually finds in mystery short stories. Stories range from the humorous to the inspiring to the cynical. Definitely recommended.
