Summary

A collection of interlinked tales of crime and retribution laced with dark humour, set around the festive season – from the number-1 best seller Stuart MacBride. Thieves, drug dealers, lap-dancers, gangsters, and even the odd good guy populate these 12 tales exploring the seedier side of life in North East Scotland.

Twelve Days of Winter - twelve excellent tales.

I've just finished listening to this book whilst waiting for 'Close to the Bone'. Twelve stories, just the right length, each story so different yet all connect with each other. Stuart MacBride at his very best. Very highly recommended.

Macbride at his best

What made the experience of listening to Twelve Days of Winter: Crime at Christmas - Twelve Days of Winter Omnibus edition the most enjoyable?

I love stuart macbride and this book of several short stories was fun to listen to

What was one of the most memorable moments of Twelve Days of Winter: Crime at Christmas - Twelve Days of Winter Omnibus edition?

The detail of his stories, made me feel like I was right there, inside it experiencing it all myself. The way he makes his books makes me easy to forget that I am just listening to it and am not part of it

What does Ian Hanmore bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

He has a very unique way of telling the story. It felt a little like story time back when inwas a child, just with a lot darker stories

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Not really, all of the different parts were great

Any additional comments?

Cant wait to listen to my next stuart macbride book. I read them all so its nice to just expirience it all again while just listening to it.
