It is a cold autumn morning in 1927 when tragic news reaches you. Rachel Goodwin, mother, wife and friend, has passed away. A death which affects each and every one of you in a different way. A death that could reveal secrets and destroy a seemingly happy family. A death that could turn friends into enemies and bring out intrigue and resentment.

Rachel Goodwin, the wife of Cornelius Goodwin was found dead in the bedroom a few days ago by the "butler" William Baker. According to the police, this is a homicide. Since Rachel Goodwin was found dead at home, the killer must be a person from her immediate environment, according to the police.

Rachel's grieving husband has invited you all to the funeral service at his home. Not only to grieve together, but also to find her killer and hand him over to the police. But will this be as simple as you thought? Will the killer simply surrender? What motive could he have had?

Questions upon questions, but the most important one:

Will you find the murderer?
