Halloween night. you are a guest at a very exclusive party: the annual
Costume Ball at Ashcroft Farm. You are mingling with society's blue bloods
and power brokers, sampling caviar and champagne, and enjoying the fine
orchestra and the outlandish costumes. Quite a treat for a newspaper
reporter like you -- until someone plays a nasty trick on you. You're
framed for a murder you didn't commit. You'll have a hard time convincing
the police of your innocence. You'll have to figure out who did commit the
heinous crime, and why. You'll need irrefutable proof. The murderer is no
doubt watching your every move. But you have only a few hours to escape the
trap that's been laid for you.
The murderer is in your midst, laughing behind your back.
