Murder Mystery Plot

The circus has been in town and it’s the last night before you pack up and move on to the next town. As a company you are celebrating a successful run with a few drinks at a party, but all is not as it seems.

Beneath the cheerful exteriors that is the circus some issues that have been suppressed for too long finally came to light and several heated arguments took place. With affairs and scandals that have been kept secret being brought to the surface now everyone suddenly seems mad at the Burnum brothers. 

When one of them turns up dead, suspended from his own knife throwing board no one seems that surprised. But who killed him? Were they aiming for him or his brother the ring master? It’s up to you to find out.
