The year is 1840 and Ebeneezer Scrooge is attending a party with his employee Bob Cratchit looking for one of his debtors, Euphoria Needymore. Hot on his heels is Constable Catchem from London, who is investigating the murder of Jacob Marley, Scrooge's business partner. He arrives to question all of the suspects, and to his surprise finds a London charwoman, Fanny Dilber, also at the party.
Scrooge was the victim's business partner, Cratchit his put-upon employee, Needymore his debtor and Dilber his business associate. All have a motive for his murder. Can you help Constable Catchem solve the mystery?
This storyline works well at Christmas, particularly if the venue in candlelit.
