It is the fifth anniversary of the death of Lord Rutherford

Lady Rutherford is throwing her annual dinner in commemoration of the event - to which you are cordially invited

On arrival you are given a character name and a dossier explaining your background and connection to the Rutherford family

Over cocktails, you mingle with the other guests, spotting the Baroness von Keepsemfrumfloppen and figuring she's an actress, but what about all these other people?

Suddenly, there's a gunshot resulting in the evening's first corpse

The body is removed and you sit down to dinner where a detective reveals himself and begins the investigation

What have you observed so far?

Have you a clue to the killer?

Clues seem to be everywhere, but which ones count and which are red herrings?

Ultimately, there is a parade of suspects and you may question them

Perhaps you ask just the right question at the right time and unmask the murderer

And perhaps you ask the wrong question and become the prime suspect!

You begin to wonder - will you survive till the coffee and cordials are served?

In the end, all is revealed, justice prevails and The Silver Sleuth Award is given to the guest who best explained the who, why and how dunit of the murder at Rutherford House
