Murder Mystery Dinner To Make A Killing

It's morally wrong to allow a sucker to keep his money.

W. C. Fields


It’s 1909 in the fashionable resort of Cape May. The well-to-do members of various philanthropic associations have gathered for their annual dinner at The Sand Dollar Hotel. Albert and his wife Lizzie Mark, both affiliated with the Loving Hearts Society, Nellie Wooley, the church organist, Estelle Duval the president of The Needlework Association, and Sheriff Friskem are anxiously waiting for the arrival of Jessie Leap. They will present her with a substantial amount of money to attend the 1910 World Missionary Jubilee in New York. So what could go wrong when everyone is wallowing in an atmosphere of goodwill and rectitude? Who invited Lyman Carver, a broker for the Storey Cotton Company in Philadelphia to the dinner? Will he make a monetary contribution to the cause, or is he looking for a mark? A murderer is lurking and the Sheriff is going to need your help to untangle the mystery. A WORD TO THE WISE: Do not make any charitable donations during the evening. You might regret it.
