|Algonquin Hotel, home of the|
famed Algonquin Round Table.
The Detective goes away, and the rest of us go on with cocktails and small talk, wandering around the hotel or apartment, and generally enjoying ourselves as usual. But, as soon as the Murderer manages to be alone with another player, the Murderer points to the other person and says: “You are dead.” The Victim slumps down, forbidden by the rules of the game to leave the spot of the crime or make any sound until discovered.
Of course, the whole thing became all too real when we tried to play Murder on New Year’s Eve. A young Broadway starlet turned up dead in Douglas Fairbanks’ bathtub, and then we had to convince Arthur Conan Doyle to help us to investigate-- But you’ll have to read A FRIENDLY GAME OF MURDER to find out more about that.
So, here's my question for you... If you played this game with your friends or family, who would you like to “Murder”?
Dorothy Parker returns (along with Sir Arthur Conan Doyle) in A FRIENDLY GAME OF MURDER, the third book of the Algonquin Round Table Mystery series, now available in print and e-book.
