Post Mortem Trilogy

Case Synopsis

It is 1948, the City of Angels, and you are a probationary cautionary auxiliary investigator for the Global Detective Agency. Three grisly murder mysteries have come across your desk. Are you up to the task? 

In Lights, Camera,Murder! movie star Clara Rose and her estranged husband have been 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…

In Death in La-La Land the unveiling of a new rollercoaster has gone tragically wrong, with mayoral candidate Bradley Rideout flying out of his seat, through the air, and into Pirate Poppy’s Popcorn Stand — bloody kernels everywhere. Can you solve this mystery full of clowns, carnies and carnage before you yourself become the next victim?

In Lucha Muerte! horrified witnesses to a bingo-hall massacre report a gunman wearing the iconic costume of El Angel Rojo — local hero of Mexican wrestling. And now it is up to you —  to venture into the wild world of Lucha Libre, where heroes and villains alike keep their identities hidden. Is the Red Angel actually a demon in disguise? Or are there even more insidious forces at play? 

This special box-set contains three separate murder mysteries and everything you need to solve them: evidence to examine, maps to follow, autopsy and witness reports to study, suspects to interrogate, puzzles to crack and codes to break, as well as three thrilling pulp novels to narrate your progress through the hard-boiled streets of Los Angeles. But please remember: though an exciting opportunity, discretion is a must. The walls have ears.

And as we say at the GDA: Our eyes never sleep.

I need more!

The stories are incredibly fun, the attention to detail never ceased to amaze me, and it was challenging enough without being frustrating. My only complaint is that there are only 3 mysteries in this series. I would absolutely love to see more!

A lot of fun, and enjoy all the period touches

I and my wife really enjoyed the character and period touches to the first mystery we did, Lights, Camera, Murder. The pulp novel and business directory as your only guide, no googling, the quirky informants. I say I was really impressed with the detail and work put into making it fun. I enjoyed it so much that I am working out a way to get friends to join us in a sort of radio production version to figure it out together on Zoom for her birthday.

Great mystery puzzle

Mystery works where you read a section then are given leads, to find other sections to read. I have done things like this before but this one had a lot of depth and was very fell done.

One of the best boxes I’ve ever bought

I bought these after lurking on the mysterious package company website for about a year. They were so much fun to do. My boyfriend and I just got hastur, so I can’t wait to see what else mpc has in store!
