White Elephant
White Elephant
by Trish Harnetiaux
There are only a few rules in a White Elephant gift exchange at the office holiday party for the real estate firm owned by Henry Calhoun and his wife Claudine: 1) Everyone brings a wrapped, unmarked gift. 2) Numbers are drawn to decide who picks first. 3) Nothing is off the table. Everyone is puzzled when a strange gift shows up in the mix: an antique cowboy statue. The gift makes sense only to Henry and Claudine. The statue is the weapon Henry used to commit a murder years ago, a murder that helped start his company and a murder that Claudine helped cover up. She swore that no one would ever be able to find the statue or trace it to their crime. So which of their employees did? And why did they place it in the White Elephant? Over the course of the evening, Henry and Claudine race to figure out who could have planted the weapon, and just what the night means for the secrets they've been harboring. Further adding to the drama is a snowstorm that closes nearby roads preventing anyone from leaving, as well as keeping law enforcement from the scene. And by the end of this crazy night, the police will most definitely be required.
