happy holidays

DATE: December 19, 2020


The holiday party began with laughing and mingling.  A comedian performed, a psychic told fortunes, an actress did a reading. Suddenly there were screams and gun shots and the victim collapsed, dead. Who did it?  Was it the jealous fiance, the greedy twin sister, the ambitious understudy or…someone else? Listen carefully as the detective begins the investigation.  Can you solve The Very Merry Murder? Solve correctly and you will be entered in a drawing for the grand prize!
