In the author's defense, it's very difficult to write a good mystery adventure. This is a simple, single-stage murder mystery, which somehow requires three pages of exposition to explain. The author has a natural and pleasant writing style, but this doesn't completely offset the fact that the adventure will likely take the DM too long to prepare for a scant reward. It might be interesting as part of a larger narrative or module, if the preliminary information could be distilled down into paragraphs over pages. The layout is spartan. The odd handout is included, which I suppose is helpful. I look forward to seeing what the author does next - this is an encouraging, if tentative, first step into the world of adventure writing. Put a little more time into the next one, and maybe invest in a more engaging aesthetic, and I suspect it might be something rather good.

Thank you very much for the prompt review! I tried to balance the information to understand the mechanics of a murder mystery with the communication element, but clearly I've got much to learn. Despite the two stars I'm very encouraged by your words!
