Recommends it for: EVERYONE
Recommended to Molly by: Joel M. Andre
Okay, so what do you get when you cross fantasy with horror and the death of Jolly Old St. Nick??? One heck of a rockin' great novel! Joel M. Andre is a superb horror author. He is taking the spot for favorite horror novelist, hands down. Wow. I needed some really good reading material for this weekend and was pleasantly surprised when I had the chance to review this for Joel. I had just recently read and fell in love with his novel The Black Chronicles: The Cry of The Fallen, which was Detectiv ...more

“If this is some weird ass reality show, I want no part of it.” – Detective Lauren Bruni

Detective Lauren Bruni can be forgiven for thinking someone is playing a sick joke on her. After all, how often does one get called out to a remote North Pole village to investigate the murder of Kris Kringle? Yeah, that Kringle.

Bruni’s first clue that this isn’t going to be a typical day at the office is the hundred or so “little people” she finds clustered around the victim’s body upon her arrival at the sc

Lauren Bruni has to investigate the death of a well-known figure in the small village of Natale at the North Pole. She also has to learn to see that which previously she didn't believe exists - in order to save the world.

This book is a prequel of sorts to "Cry of the Fallen" and has a much smoother plot structure and editing. Some who have read it have commented that they found it funny, and while there were a few sly moments, I didn't see that, myself. A good book for the mystery/fantasy with a

A Death At The North Pole is the first book from Joel M. Andre that I have had the pleasure to read. I picked this book because I love a good murder mystery and this one sounded and turned out to be a good one.

I have to admit I was a little taken by the character that was murdered. I was wondering how this story was going to go at that point. The author does a nice job with the character descriptions which made it easy for me to get to know the characters.

I received the Ebook which I normally do
This was free for Kindle.
It is a horror story centered around Christmas.
Santa is found murdered in the snow. Lauren Bruni, a homicide detective, shows up to begin the investigation. She doesn't believe in Santa, elves, etc., and really can't figure out what she is even doing at the North Pole.
Lauren discovers something fishy about the medical examiner and his assistant. Then Mrs. Claus is murdered, too.
Is Lauren the person who can stop this madness and rescue "belief" for the world?

Well, that was interesting. Investigation of the death of Santa Claus, described rather 'twisted' and a bit too gory for me. I gave it a 3 because of the author's guts to write something totally different that others might find it disturbing. Do not get the Audio book/ebook, the narrator is annoying.

A Death at the North Pole was an imaginative story. It just ended. There were no mentions of see boo X to read further. If there was I missed it and I apologize. It was a little to gory for me. But the story line was great. This was a good read that I gave 3 stars to!

A strange little tale that could have been quite interesting. Unfortunately the atrociously poor editing and ebook formatting are so annoying that, had it been a paper book, I would have flung it out the window and never thought of it again.
Oct 17, 2012 Michelle rated it it was ok
Terrible format, editing and writing. The only reason I finished it was because it was so short and I felt obligated to.

Bizarre fantasy featuring Santa, elves, ghouls etc. and a police officer trying to investigate a murder.
Bleu Caldwell
If you like a good dose of horror in your holiday you might like this, but it was way too gory for me.
