Our second murder mystery took place on Saturday, January 25th. Held entirely within the Silver Heart Inn, the murderer was apprehended in three hours.
It was 1937, a time of great achievement, great danger, and great uncertainty. Industrialist Peter Petulant was mudered aboard his streamlined train, the Petulant Express, underway somewhere outside of Akron, OH. The Inspector brought together the sleuths for assistance in solving the crime.
After dinner in the club car (including a birthday celebration), sleuthing teams questioned the suspects for clues. Was it the obnoxious German brewer, the demure English mystery writer, the blustry southern senator, young Norwegian figure skater, the brash Aussie croc hunter, mysterious Italian opera singer, rotund baseball star or the flamboyant fashion designer?? Everyone had secrets, and some of those secrets, once revealed, could help solve the murder.
At the final gathering, the Inspector revealed the murderer. One sleuth had deduced ‘who done it’ and was rewarded with a gift certificate. The suspect with the best costume was similarly rewarded. All guests left with a Silver Heart Inn keepsake wine glass.
We would like to thank everyone who participated in this wonderful event, and to Debra for making mystery magic once again. Watch this blog and Facebook for information on the next adventure.
