Rock Star Becomes Reindeer Road Kill

Visions of sensational headlines, not sugarplums, dance in LA Informer columnist Tina Bender’s head this holiday season.

When the drummer for ’80s hair-metal band Twelve falls from the top of a holiday parade float and gets trampled to death by eight not-so-tiny reindeer, Tina scoops the story of the year! But was the fall an accident or something more sinister? Was the drummer’s jilted lover involved, or his newly discovered son? And what does the snowman have to do with it? Crack tabloid reporter Tina’s on the case—determined to find out who’s been naughty and who’s been downright lethal.

Read on for my thoughts on Twelve’s Drummer Dying.  No true spoilers, promise.

Twelve’s Drummer Dying is a quick mystery with a holiday touch.  Tina is out to solve the mysterious death of an older, faded rock group’s drummer being pushed off of the float he was riding on in the Santa Claus Parade.

It was far from an accident – but there are lots of possible suspects, and one killer to discover.

This was a fun, and quirky story.  Watch out for those reindeer!


And this brings us to the last story in the 12 Days of Christmas – mostly killer – stories.  In case you’ve forgotten from the first review, the twelve days of Christmas actually begin on Christmas day and run until Epiphany.  Something I never really knew.  🙂  So, I’ve followed the true twelve days when doing these reviews.
