A Christmas Most Shocking

Street Car Mysteries

 In December 1906, Harry Reese follows his roving wife to Washington for a reunion with the formidable Countess von Schnurrenberger und Kesselheim.

In the second part, told by a precocious young girl then staying with the countess, details are filled in, motivations explained, and secrets revealed….
