It is because one of you… is the murderer of Sir Hector Blayvin! And tonight I shall unmask the guilty party! Will it be Contessa Gloryosky von Saspoot, who coveted Sir Hector’s fortune to finance her $5,000-a-day QVC pewter figurine shopping habit?
Or perhaps it is none other than Reginald Bloomingonion, who was swindled by Sir Hector into spending millions on worthless swamp land in Siberia, which is even more embarrassing when you consider that there is no swamp land in Siberia?
Or shall I name Sir Horace’s twin daughters, Abigail and Abigail, who never forgave their cruel father for not giving them different names?
Or will it be Lord Brimstone Mountbatty, rebuffed in his attempts to purchase Sir Hector’s estate to turn it into Middle Ages Happy Torture Time theme park?
So, you may ask yourselves: How shall I reveal the dastardly killer? It is but child’s play! I shall leave the murder weapons — a Colt 45, a crowbar, three bottles of poison, and a copy of Dianetics — on the coffee table and turn my back, at which time the murderer will reveal himself to the others by killing me in an attempt to thwart the investigation!
