A Corpse For Christmas (II) by Carter Brown

Al Wheeler finds hot tempers, hot chicks, and one warm corpse

Christmas stockings? Filled with goodies?
Depends on what kind. Al Wheeler doesn't need the holiday bit to wish for the well-filled stocking. He's in favor of lovely legs, and there on up, nicely stacked, at any month of the twelve month year. (Thirteen if you count Leap Year). "Excelsior!" says Al, which is not the only stuff they pack around the Christmas crockery. Al rises to that battle cry when he meets Maggie, the gal with the wild grey streak in her hair, the wild black and white disappearing dress, the wild recklessness of propriety, held together by only a drawstring.
