June Murder Mystery:

Evil on the Beach – June 11th, 6:00 PM

It is November 12, 1928.

Yesterday marked the tenth anniversary of the signing of the armistice that ended the “war to end all wars.” The European economy today, though, is in another war – one of survival. It is in shambles, and many factions struggle for power with promises of better times to come.

Last night, however, at a secluded spot in Florida known as Sandy Ring Island, a celebration had occurred. Comrades in arms, wounded in the service of their nations during that Great War, toasted their reunion.

All three had been sent to the same French military hospital to recuperate. There, they had become staunch friends. When the peace treaty was signed, they vowed to be together again a decade after the end of the conflict. At a rustic lodge on the Gulf of Mexico called Sea Breeze they had kept their word.

But this morning, a pall was thrown over last night’s festivities, for a body was discovered face down on the beach behind Sea Breeze. It was the Russian writer, Gregor Manov, another guest at the inn. His skull had been crushed with a large piece of driftwood. Judging from the footprints left in the sand, the deed had been perpetrated from behind while Manov was returning to the Lodge from a late-night walk.

Manov had supported the Bolsheviks during their revolution against the Czarist regime. His works had gained world notoriety as he championed the cause of the common man both in his nation and around the world. He was in the United States by permission of the Soviet authorities to conduct a speaking tour about the advantages of communism.

His reasons for stopping at Sea Breeze were unclear. His schedule had been light, but he broke from it three days ago, finding his way to the secluded spot. His presence only added to the human menagerie that had recently seemed to descend upon the spot. Only through careful questioning and precise logic would motive and murderer emerge.

July Murder Mystery:

I Loathe a Parade! – July 23rd, 6:00 PM

Joe Possumz was first elected mayor of the community of Elmtown (population 12,000) twelve years ago. At that time, the 4th of July parade was a ten minute affair, consisting of four units and a lot of fire trucks. With the mayor’s backing, the parade has become a holiday extravaganza. The 80-plus units in the parade now take two hours to pass by the reviewing stand, where the mayor gazes with pride at the event that he built and nurtured.

This year’s parade was unforgettable. As always, Mayor Possumz was in the reviewing stand, waving at the parade while wearing his famous red-white-and-blue bowtie. As the final drum-and-bugle corps passed by, the mayor bit into a hot dog coated with traditional brown mustard and topped off with a dark-green dill pickle. When he finished the culinary treat, Possumz wiped the perspiration off his brow, smiled faintly at the crowd and collapsed. To the amazement of those nearby, the local doctor rushed to him, checked for a pulse, and pronounced him dead.

Any politician is only as secure as his last controversial decision, and the mayor has made many enemies over the years. Could one of them have done in the mayor as he was enjoying his most noteworthy accomplishment?

August Murder Mystery:

Hulas and Homicide – August 13th, 6:00 PM

She was known as the Hula Honcho. Winnie Waheli was the head judge at the annual hula contest on Kikiwai Beach. Once regarded as the most accomplished dancer in Hawaii, Winnie’s career abruptly ended two decades ago when an injury prevented her from ever again competing professionally.

Since her injury, Winnie has organized the hula event at the Kikiwai Queen Hotel each year. She made a point of meeting the competitors and talking to the press, all the while ensuring that she was the center of attention.

Tonight would have been the night that this year’s hula extravaganza took place. But all is not well in paradise. This morning, her lifeless body was found on the beach, apparently the victim of foul play.

Who would dare end the career of the maven of movement? Could someone have plotted the death of the darling of divatude? It will take a unique perspective and expert investigative skills to identify the guilty party.
