Synopsis

This edition of W. Somerset Maugham's Christmas Holiday, a Parisian murder mystery brimming with drama and intrigue, is the eleventh volume in the Hatchards Library.

Synopsis

Based on a Parisian murder trial Maugham attended, Christmas Holiday tells the story of a shocking crime. Charley Mason, a charming and gentle young man, plans a ‘glorious, wild and romantic’ Christmas in Paris before settling down in the family firm. On his first night he meets a supposed Russian princess in exile; murder, communism and impoverished émigrés fill the rest of his holiday, making an intriguing study of human nature. A fascinating comment on the period and a marvellous picture of 1930s Paris.
