What's the Mystery Here?
Visiting a fortune teller is usually a bit of harmless fun, but in this case, it leads to murder. But we're getting a bit ahead of ourselves here. Let's meet the dramatis personae
There's Laura Dent on a visit to the fortune teller
Lionel Dent Laura's insurance salesman husband
Mystic Myrtle she of the crystal ball
Hubert Leniewski Mystic Myrtle's husband, though strangely, she never foresaw that he would be a slob
Joyce Lawson Laura's younger sister
And finally, helping the audience make sense of it all, Detective Chief Inspector Ben Cleveleys
It seems that each party has motives for hating one or more of the others, so who gets murdered? By whom? How? and Why? It's time for the audience to turn detective.
