Murder at Mablethorpe Hotel
A professional cricket club, “The London Locusts” arrived at The Mablethorpe Manor Hotel earlier this afternoon as part of this season’s cricket fixtures. The rowdy cricket squad meet up at the hotel bar and are served by the characterful staff members. The celebration is spoiled when Bernard Reed, the Hotel Manager, is found drowned with his head in a bowl of punch. He had been holding a diamond necklace for a family member—is that why he was murdered? Or was it a guest who wanted the necklace for themselves? Or did someone kill Bernard by mistake, intending to get his lookalike cousin, the cricket club Manager, Duncan Hope? Whodunnit? The police have been called to investigate the crime and have put their lead detective Shaun Fitzgerald of the Homicide Division in charge. Detective Fitzgerald has locked down the hotel, so no one can enter or leave, and has already whittled the suspects down to 4 people. With the hotel lockdown in play, it means the murderer is still in the building. To ensure the safety of everyone inside, the detective has brought in a team of highly trained private investigators (YOU) to help interrogate the suspects, examine the evidence, sift through the lies and help solve the mystery, in case the murderer strikes again.
