You’re a high-roller at the A. Lee Gull Casino in downtown Miami, and things are looking up. You just won big tonight playing Texas Hold ‘Em and the casino president, Alice Lee-Gull, has comped you her executive suite for the night.
You stay back for a bit, recapping the game with your fellow players, while Alice takes the elevator up to the suite to ensure everything is in order. After some laughs and banter, you go up to the suite. You’re so thrilled to luxuriate in the swanky digs that you don’t notice the blood on the gold doorknob as you grasp it to enter the room. But once inside you do notice the room in absolute disarray and signs of a struggle: a messy bed, an open safe, broken vases and upended chairs.
Unable to remain at the hotel you make your way home and immediately fall into bed. Upon waking from a fitful night of sleep, you stagger to the living room to open your laptop and check the news to see if there are any stories about last night. You watch a Miami PD press conference and find out that Alice is missing and presumed dead but the police say they lack any evidence to pursue a case, even though you left the suite as it was – a total mess. “How could there be no evidence?” You ask yourself. Yearning to shed light on this bizarre coverup you go to your local library to see if research can help you unravel this mystery. You need to find some evidence that will point you to the killer – How did Alice die? Where was she killed? And Whodunit?!
