A Christmas Letter
by AJ Hayes
My Dear Mrs. Hathaway,
Your letter touched me deeply and, because I agreed with you on what Christmas present would be the dearest to you, I went looking. I have quite a few more avenues of investigation open to me than the police and they paid off. If you will look upstairs you will find your daughter sleeping safely in her bed. She will have no memory of my visit of course.
I found her in an old house on the edge of town. I also found her abductor.
I'm sorry that I had to leave Katie's lovely shoes on the porch of that old house. After my reindeer got through with the kidnapper, they were just too messy to bring home.
