Kiss of Death

It’s 1890 and you’re invited to the engagement party for John Jacob “Jack” Astor IV, heir to the Astor family fortune. Jack’s mother, “the” Mrs. Astor, has selected 3 of the finest debutantes as candidates for her only son. Who will win the heart and purse strings of the wealthiest bachelor in Newport society?

It’s all fun and games until Jack’s bride-to-be is revealed, when the gloves come off and a murderer takes the ring…

Search the galleries for clues, question the suspects, and help solve the crime before the evening ends. All’s fair in love, war, and arranged marriages.
