Post Mortem LA: Lights, Camera, Murder!
Despite countless death scenes filmed in Hollywood, none have prepared Tinseltown for the two bodies found on the set of a new movie. Do you have what it takes to solve the grisly crime in this hard-boiled murder mystery?
“Hollywood is a place where they’ll pay you a thousand dollars for a kiss and fifty cents for your soul.” — Marilyn Monroe
Join the Global Detective Agency!
Movie star Clara Rose and her estranged husband are discovered shot to death on the dusty backlot of Orpheum Pictures. Classic murder-suicide? Hollywood rivalries that became too real? Mob debts unpaid? Or perhaps something far more sinister...
As the GDA’s probationary cautionary auxiliary investigator, it is up to you to find the truth.
The package sent to you will contain a map of your jurisdiction, a directory, evidence bags, clues, crime scene photos, and maybe a few surprises. It will also include a full pulp novel narrating your experience as you go about your investigation.
You will use these resources to carve your path around LA, interrogate suspects, and solve the murder. But please remember: Although an exciting opportunity, discretion is a must. The walls have ears.
And as we say at the GDA: Our eyes never sleep.
Post Mortem LA: Lights, Camera, Murder! will begin shipping in February.

Post Mortem makes you feel like a real detective. The minute I started reading I became totally immersed in the story: following leads, talking to suspects, solving puzzles. It’s a fun, challenging and accessible game that you’ll have a hard time putting down.
