Publisher's Summary

A Christmas mystery introducing Owen Irvine, the Lake District shepherd-cum-detective hero of JJ Salkeld's A Natural Detective series. Set in the mid-1980s, this entertaining short story concerns the theft of the baby Jesus himself. All right, it's only a small wooden figure from the church's nativity scene, but as far as the vicar is concerned, dark forces must surely be at play in the Kentmere valley.

This cozy short story audiobook will be a must-listen for existing JJ Salkeld fans - not least because one of the most popular characters from The Lakeland Murders series has a starring role - and it's also a prequel to the Owen Irvine books. How was it that he ever managed to join Cumbria Constabulary in the first place, in spite of his father's apparently implacable opposition?

Narrated by Cumbrian actor Kerry Willison-Parry, this audiobook is an authentic-sounding slice of life in the lovely English Lake District.
