"The Twelve Crimes of Christmas" is not ALL murder---The Ellery Queen story is about a master thief, and "Do Your Christmas Shoplifting Early" is about a scam. It's worth having the book just for those two, and for the intro by Isaac Asimov---he goes a bit into the history of Christmas. I read them early in the season, and then read cozier stuff closer to the Day.

BTW, I got out of the office shortly after it closed at 1 p.m., and Mr. got out early, too, so we went and had a big lunch to kick off the long weekend. Yay! May get some ice cream later. No special plans for the weekend, but that's a good thing.
