Sitting in your office on a lovely sunny summer's day, your reverie is broken by
the shrill ring of the telephone. You rise to your feet and cross the office to
the large mahogany desk where the phone sits and reaching down, pick up the
receiver with your left hand. "Inspector Vance here." you say and a man's voice,
shaking with emotion, cries out from the other end of the phone-line. "Murder,
it's murder", he said.
After calming him down you discover that a young man, by the name of Philip
Stowe, has been found dead, apparently murdered. This has taken place at Dundee Manor some time early this morning. Seemingly family and friends were gathered
there to celebrate the engagement of Philip to Emily Dundee.
You call in the desk-sergeant and tell him to make a casebook up, with files on all the people present in the Dundee Manor at the time of the alleged murder.
You then phone the local medical examiner and ask him to attend the scene of the
crime and to finish his preliminary examination before you arrive ... if at all
possible. Gathering together the usual 'tools of the trade', you make your way
to the street and prepare to head for the manor house.
Cast Of Characters
When you have solved the case and succeeded in unearthing all the clue, red
herrings etc. you will have amassed a final score of 250 points.
All the usual commands are available with addition of such ones as RAMSAVE and RAMLOAD. Use these to store/recall a saved position to and from memory but always use the more permanent method of LOAD and SAVE to tape or disk.
The only way to interact with the various characters is to question them ... so
use this approach .... QUESTION EMILY or QUESTION GERALDINE
