Notes

Murderopolis!!! Is the murder/mystery farce set in a New England-style mansion. 8 guests are invited to dinner, but only one will walk away with the money. Will it be the seemingly harmless youngsters? The private dick? Pearl seems awfully good at orchestrating this whole event...and then there's Calvin, he always knows more than what seems natural. FIND OUT in this story of murder and intrigue!
