A festive Christmas get together in Nauman's honor results in acrimony--and subsequent morning one of many trustees is located in a such a lot unfestive heap on the backside of the basement steps. Lt. Sigrid Harald were an unwilling visitor and the occasion and now she needs to go back to enquire why that trustee used to be so universally hated. As frequently occurs while Nauman is concerned, Sigrid's specialist tasks are complex by way of her off-duty relationships.

Corpus Christmas was once first released in 1989, yet not like others during this sequence, there's little, in a technological feel, to jar the reader until one compulsively provides and subtracts from the few dates scattered throughout the textual content. the recent York depicted here's a great deal because it is at the present time, except—tragically—for the view of decrease long island that Sigrid loved from the deck of a Staten Island ferry. even though loosely in accordance with an amalgam of the nationwide Arts membership on Gramercy Park, the Theodore Roosevelt Birthplace, and the Horace Williams apartment in Chapel Hill, the Breul condo itself is an entire fiction.
