Will the DEA ruin Christmas forever?
Nicole and her allies are in a race against time to keep their billion dollar global enterprise—and the hopes of millions—alive in this adventure. Her company ensures toys arrive at the homes of millions of children and families from their secret enclave above the Arctic Circle.

Ambitious DEA agents hope they can follow the money trail to close down what they suspect is one of the world’s most sophisticated drug cartels.

Good read anytime of the year
Very imaginative telling of a more modern Santa Claus story. Four stars because I really don't think anyone can physically fake a coma, so that whole section was lost on me. I liked the story's set up and duel character timelines converting at the climax. The actual mole was a fun surprise. Good afternoon read any time of year!
