Difficulty Rating – 7/10
Thoughts About This Mystery:
This was an extra box not part of the monthly subscription. It is a mini mystery about half the size of the normal monthly mystery boxes. It doesn’t take as long to finish, I did this one in about an hour. This mystery comes in an envelope not a box.
This one was pretty quick and there are only a few puzzles to figure out. Of course, I still needed hints.
This is a sequel to the first monthly mystery that Deadbolt Society came out with, that one was Murder in 3B. You do not need to complete the first part to do this mystery, it can be done alone, it is nice to go back and visit a place in Valley Falls again.
Check out the Deadboly Mystery Society website for some past mysteries and see what is in stock. The stock changes so if this one isn’t available you can check back or subscribe to their email list, they send out updates when they restock things.
