Preparing for the upcoming Christmas party, Archie and Nero have conflicting ideas on socializing. Archie parts ways to have a festive time, and the drinks flow from a bar tender dressed up in a Santa costume. The festivity continues with the announcement of wedding plans. Things are going too well, isn’t it about time for a corpse to make the scene? Can the doors be locked in time to keep the deadly Santa from fleeing the building?
Cops are soon on hand, and the clues of the crime are reviewed. Who had motive, and access to the poison that was used? Was Santa the killer, or just a hired man to mix up the drinks, for someone else? Back in the office, Archie learns… Let’s just say that Santa’s padding wasn’t fake… and he discovers a secret about where Nero was. What other observations does Nero have about the happenings at the party? Can he catch a killer before he has the embarrassment of confessing his secrets to inspector Kramer?
Some body at the party may have seen through Nero’s involvement as Santa. What do they want in trying to leverage a little blackmail against him? Does Miss Kwon know who the killer is? Is Kraemer smarter than Archie figured in finding clues? Will Nero have what he needs to bring the case to a rapid close? The cast of suspects are rounded up, and Nero confronts each with the facts in the case. By the time Kraemer shows up, Nero wraps up the big reveal. Stand by for plenty of plot twists as Nero kicks the lid off the crime.
