The year is 1928. The place, New York, New York. You are an employee of Greengood Broadcasting Corporation, operator of a pioneering commercial radio station. Your boss, corporation president Morris Greengood, is hosting the annual station Christmas Party assisted by his vice-president, Victoria Fairchild, and his secretary, Jeremy Jones. The spirit of the occasion is marred, however, by three regrettable circumstances:

  • Morris's sister, Hermione has ambitions for her drunken, no-good husband, Walter Getz, that threaten Victoria's job and the welfare of the station,
  • Walter is scheduled to play Santa Claus at the party and
  • Morris has recently received an anonymous death threat.

Join Detective O'Shea of the New York Police Department in his investigations as he attempts to deduce For Whom the Jingle Bell Tolls.
