When a young mother is accused of drowning her child on Christmas Eve, a surprise discovery during the body transport forces apprentice mortician Melisende Dulac to confront her own ghosts of Christmas past—and help bring the perpetrator to justice.

“Christmas Spirit” marks the third appearance of Melisende Dulac, and takes place roughly six months after the events of Crossroad. It appears in Alfred Hitchcock’s Mystery Magazine, November/December 2021 issue.
