The nine alumni of the Damien Anderson’s Detective Training Agency have gathered at an isolated house in the woods for a class reunion. It’s the perfect setting for a murder as their phones don’t work and they are stranded after a snowstorm. Then the host turns up murdered and they discover that this is all part of a complicated game of killing the alumni off one by one.
Can the former detective agency’s alumni discover who the murderer is before all of them are killed? Nothing seems to be able to stop the killings as each one waits to see who the next victim will be. As much a puzzle as a mystery, this short read is a fun exercise in detection as the diabolic plan plays out in Nine Man’s Murder by Eric Keith.
