Sportsmen Yacht Club Presents

"The Auction"
Murder Mystery Thriller

October 24, 2014



Looks like a bunch of unsavory characters hanging out around the Baroness' neighborhood...


The Plot:

The Baroness is dead!  Police suspect foul play…

Baroness Audry von Munchen died in very peculiar circumstances last week.  Police revealed today that the baroness was found dead in her bed by her maid, Miss Linda Lovelace, at breakfast one morning.  An inquiry into the death has been set up and is being led by Inspector Clu d’Eau—a bumbling idiot who, it has been suggested, could not organize a drinks party in a brewery.  It is believed the Baroness did not die from natural causes and the police are already describing the incident as a ‘suspicious death.’

Following the suspicious death of Baroness Audry von Muchen, the estate and fabulous von Muchen relics are to be auctioned off to the highest bidder.  In the absence of a legal heir, it looks like all the proceeds will go to her favorite charity—unless a claimant comes forward at the last moment.  What is the truth behind the Baroness’ death?

There is only one way to find out!!!
