Film Company High Noon Productions are on location and filming their latest project… However, with the film running over budget and behind schedule, pressures are mounting on director Periquito Kerridge.

Millionaire Lorenzo Beck is financing the show, however he has more than breaking legs to worry about… Why is anarchist Jimmy Cush stalking members of the cast, and what connects the violent assault at a local prison three months ago to the members of his Theatre company…
The circumstances surrounding the death of the owner of a strip club many years previously are about to return to haunt one of the members of the cast, as events spiral out of control…
As a murder is announced you will get the chance to help the police with their enquiries as you meet the suspects up close and personal to discover who is lying…and who is lying dead.
In this unusual Murder Mystery you are invited to dress in black, playing along with the fact that you are attending the wake of the funeral of Mason Banks. Solicitor Rodney Maple-Mellor gathers you all for the reading of Mason Banks’ last will and testament. Also assembled are so-called friends and remaining family of the late and unlamented bar owner.

When Mason’s wife Chloe was found drowned in a reservoir 6 months ago, the only hope was that this would be an end to the tragedy that had befallen the Banks family. However, the worst is yet to come! And a crucial piece of evidence held by Mason’s cleaner, Russian girl Ronice Pavalac, is set to turn this case on its head….
