Thoughts About This Mystery:
This was a good one, the theme was a kidnapping, so no murders to investigate this mystery. It includes a kidnapping, gambling, poker and a Gala.
There were a lot of suspects to investigate and eliminate. Family, Friends, Employees… who did the kidnapping..?
This mystery box had a good amount of puzzles and a variety of different kinds.
All the suspects could be eliminated but I totally missed the clues in one puzzle and didn’t eliminate one of the suspects I should have. Not all of the suspects were eliminated by the puzzles, which was the thing that I got messed up on.
This mystery is occasionally available as a one time purchase through the Deadbolt Mystery Society website. If that mystery isn’t available, there is usually a good choice of past mystery to choose from.
