The Murder Box

The Murder Box

Follow the rules of the game, or your next move might be your last

At first, DCS Frankie Sheehan believes the murder mystery game left outside her door, is simply a cynical birthday gift from one of her colleagues. But as Frankie studies the game’s contents she begins to see a striking resemblance between the fictional victim and missing twenty-two-year-old Lydia Callin.

As Lydia’s prior involvement with a group of murder mystery players becomes clear, Frankie delves deeper into a game where every successful move brings you closer to the truth. And while more grisly crime scenes are discovered across Dublin it’s not a question of what happens when you win, but what happens when you lose. Can you find the answers before it’s too late?

Who are the victims? Who are the suspects? Who are the players?
