An Elf stumbles across Santa's body in the middle of the forest. A single set of footprints lead to the body and disappear. There is nothing else around for miles. And so begins the most important investigation of detective Johnny Iceberg's career. Discover a world in which Elves may be disgruntled factory workers or photographers on snowshoed stilts — a world in which Mrs. Claus is less than half Santa's age and wears a curvy, low-cut size 6 — a world in which penguins can be police officers and polar bears are beat reporters — a world in which humans are the minority and the native Snowmen have to hibernate each summer to keep from melting. Above all, experience the quest of a jaded, bitter detective trying to save the life and resurrect the innocence of an anguished 11-year old girl who finds herself framed for the murder of Santa Claus.
