On the 11th Day of Christmas…

…my true love gave to me: eleven pipers piping,

ten lords a-leaping,

nine ladies dancing,

eight maids a-milking,

seven swans a-swimming,

six geese a-laying,

five golden rings,

four calling birds,

three french hens,

two turtle doves,

and a partridge in a pear tree.

Paying the Piper

To symbolize the gift on the eleventh day of Christmas (eleven pipers piping) we selected the crime novel Paying the Piper by Simon Wood.

The Piper is an infamous child kidnapper operating in the bay area. He always returned the children unharmed when the ransom had been paid. Until a fake Piper contacted a journalist to leave “clues”. The real Piper then kills the child. Eight years later he strikes again, and this time he kidnaps the journalist’s child and the terms are different.

For the first chapter, visit the author’s official website.
