I grew up reading Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys mysteries, and looking for clues in the ordinary behavior of my friends and family. Then I graduated to the Alfred Hitchcock school of mysteries, where innocent people were often caught up in situations that were beyond their worst imaginings. That led to police procedurals, and whodunits and a whole slew of other figure-it-out reading.
Much as I loved solving the mysteries, I often wondered about the shadowy characters who perpetrated the crimes. The people who had gone over to the “dark side.” So I decided that while I’ll write stories from the point of view of the problem-solvers, I’d also write from the criminal’s point of view as well — they’re not always who (or what) you might expect. I hope you enjoy exploring what makes these characters tick as much as I have.

Looks like a lot of fun!
I haven't had a chance to do as a dinner party, but just reading the character descriptions and plot twists makes me want to take a run at it. I'll post another review once I've tried it in real life, but in the meantime, I'll be dreaming about Chicago during the Prohibition!
