The year is 1927, and as the champagne flows and the jazz plays, a shot splits the night...but who fired the shot that caused the demise of James Cosgrove? Enter a world of molls and gangsters, flappers and fellas, jazz bands, and gin joints. Stroll the mansion grounds and peek into the shadowy corners, led by your guide - who just happens to be the victim of a 100 year old murder!
You will be tasked with inspecting the crime scene, gathering the clues, and questioning the suspects you meet along the way. And perhaps, just perhaps, you can stay one step ahead of a wily murderer, avoid a similar fate, and have a chance to solve a MURDER BY GASLIGHT: The Murder of James Cosgrove
