Killed Until Dead

Killed Until Dead

US Gold, 1987

As Hercule Holmes, the world's greatest detective, you are faced with the toughest challenge of your career.

The world's finest murder mystery writers are gathered at the Gargoyle Hotel for a festival of murder and mayhem. They're known as the Midnight Murder Club aka the Red Herring Club and you must stop them before they pull off their dirty deeds. This is the ultimate challenge to your sleuthing skills. You must uphold the family honour and discover, BEFORE the scheduled murder, the identities of the Killer and his/her intended victim. And that's not all. You must also correctly identify the murder weapon and where the crime will take place. And finally, you must figure out the murder motive.

But beware! If you don't have your facts straight when you make your accusation, you become the intended victim.

The clock starts at Noon. You've got exactly 12 hours to prevent the murder.
