In Moriah County, Mississippi on Christmas Eve 2001, the Moriah County Patrol Boat operated by Deputy Cecil Watson and a crew of three believe they have cornered the suspected smugglers dubbed "The Christmas Jewels." Their burglary consisted of transferring from Russia five million dollars, which supposedly has been traced to Serene Cove, located in Moriah County. After the Patrol Boat explodes and the thieves escape, another unfortunate accident happens. Five years later, Bea Winslow, a Private Investigator who lives in the neighboring county of Lafouchfeye, receives an important phone call from Mack Dupree, one of the suspected smugglers. After driving over to Moriah County with her Aunt, amateur sleuth Mrs. Julia McKenna, (whom she fondly calls aunt Jewels), and Sheriff Jim Travis of Lafouchfeye County, they find Mack Dupree murdered. When bodies begin piling up and Aunt Jewels is hijacked . well, murder doesn't take a holiday and mystery, suspense, and intrigue keeps your mind guessing and your fingers early turning the pages during this dazzling Christmas season!
