About the Book

THIS EXCLUSIVE MURDER MYSTERY PARTY KIT WILL WORK FOR GROUPS OF SIX TO 50. You WON'T NEED to copy anything. Simply take apart this 8.5" X 11" book and you'll have what you need to orchestrate the mystery. Those who aren't suspects help investigate the case . . . Can you solve "Betting on Death"? Here's the scenario: Everyone simply knew him as "Harold," one of the many street people who wandered through Las Vegas. He was seemingly a harmless, homeless person who elicited a smile and a muffled laugh whenever he was around - or so people thought.No one would ever have imagined what would be found when he met an untimely end, hit by a speeding sportscar in front of the Labachio Hotel and Casino while a shocked entourage of erstwhile pseudo-entrepreneurs looked on in disbelief. That's when the preconceived perceptions of Harold went through a traumatic transformation. For, as police investigated, they discovered that "looks are deceiving," and that Harold was more than a mere avenue adventurer.Who was Harold and why did he adopt his dilatory disguise? What was he looking for as he wandered waywardly in the wind? And, was his death an accident, or a premeditated plot that would have unexpected repercussions? Only expert sleuthing would produce a winning hand and solve the case.The Suspects . . .Preston Ellis - Premier Elvis impersonator. His dulcet tones perfectly mimic "The King." His jumpsuits are showing the strain of a few extra pounds.Mitsy Monroe - Aging showgirl. Her portrait used to grace the billboards in front of the Labachio. Lately, she's been choreographing the shows around the corner and down the block at Fanny's Show Lounge."Wild Bill" Billions - Professional poker player.
