    If you want to put the SOHO-HO-HO in your holiday, look no further! McIntyre’s is hosting a Soho Press Holiday Book Jam celebrating the release of the new compilation The Usual Santas: A Collection of Soho Crime Christmas Capers.
    If you have been lucky enough to join us when our friends from Soho Press have visited McIntyre’s, you will be thrilled to know Associate Publisher Juliette Grames and Paul Oliver, Director of Marketing and Publicity, are returning with novelist Cara Black. If you have joined us for previous Soho events, you know what a delightful discussion of all kinds of books and literary fare will ensue.
    This captivating collection of 18 stories — which features bestselling, and award-winning authors — contains laughs aplenty, the most hardboiled of holiday noir, and heartwarming reminders of the spirit of the season.
    Nine mall Santas must find the imposter among them. An elderly lady seeks peace from her murderously loud neighbors at Christmastime. A young woman receives a mysterious invitation to Christmas dinner with a stranger. Niccolò Machiavelli sets out to save an Italian city. Sherlock Holmes’s one-time nemesis Irene Adler finds herself in an unexpected tangle in Paris while on a routine espionage assignment. Jane Austen searches for the Dowager Duchess of Wilborough’s stolen diamonds. And other adventures that will whisk readers away to Christmases around the globe, from a Korean War POW camp to a Copenhagen refugee squat to the streets of Thailand.
