A humorous tale of what happens when a none-too-clever angel overhears a little boy, who, having witnessed Santa taking a shovel to the head, prays for Santa to return from the dead.
This darkly humorous yet appropriately sentimental Christmas fable by the author of LAMB and THE LUST LIZARD OF MELANCHOLY COVE features several characters who first appeared in Christopher Moore's previous novels. Christmas is a season rife with good intentions gone awry. Lena Marquez, trespassing on her ex-husband Dale's land in order to steal Christmas trees and give them to the poor, has accidentally killed Dale (who was dressed in a Santa suit) with a shovel. A little boy who witnessed the murder now believes Santa is dead, and has subsequently prayed for Santa to return to life. Unfortunately, he does so within earshot of an appallingly clueless angel sent to Earth to perform a Christmas miracle by fulfilling a child's wish. It's going to be a holly, zombie Christmas....
