-Many Happy Surprise Endings-
"You are about to partake in a game of Nine Man's Murder.
I have devised a little challenge for you, a small test of your
deductive abilities. All you have to do is catch a murderer.
Who is the victim, you may ask? Why, you are the victims.
One by one you will all be murdered. Your only chance of
survival is to identify the murderer and stop him, or her,
before you are added to the list of casualties.
The winner will be the one who survives."
When nine "guests" discover this note, they realize that the
"detective school reunion" they are attending is a deadly game of cat and mouse. Suddenly they find themselves trapped
on a mountaintop with a murderer--and the murderer is one of them. One by one the guests are murdered, in
increasingly baffling ways. Finally, after two impossible
locked room murders, it becomes clear that nothing can stop this diabolical killer. Everyone will die, unless someone
can identify the murderer.
NINE MAN'S MURDER is a classic whodunit in the murder-as-puzzle
tradition of Agatha Christie, complete with plot twists... and of course, a surprise ending. You'll be guessing until the shocking revelation at the end.
Welcome back, Agatha.
