Murder has descended on the North Pole and Santa Claus has no idea what to do! His only option is to turn to the only private eye in Christmas City, a hard-boiled elf who has been deemed “too naughty.” With deceit and murder around every corner, a slinky and seductive Mrs. Claus, and Christmas fast-approaching, it’s up to one elf to solve the crime before the big night: Grayson Coal, elf detective.
