When a storm strikes at Blackbrook Academy, an elite prep school nestled in the woods of Maine, a motley crew of students including Beth Peacock Picach, Orchid McKee, Vaughn Green, Sam Mustard Maestor, Finn Plum, and Scarlet Mistry are left stranded on campus with their headmaster. Hours later, his body is found in the conservatory and it s very clear his death was no accident. With this group of students who are all hiding something, nothing is as it seems, and everyone has a motive for murder. Fans of the CLUE board game and cult classic film will delight in Diana Peterfreund s modern reimagining of the brand, its characters, and the dark, magnificent old mansion with secrets hidden within its walls.

Review quote

"Fans of CLUE and murder-mystery aficionados are equally well served . . . Ingeniously plotted and vastly entertaining."--Kirkus Reviews "A smart new series . . . the plot capitalizes on the popularity of the game upon which it's based, incorporating clever wordplay with tantalizingly distributed tidbits of information. The many remaining questions will help ramp up anticipation for the next installment."--Publishers Weekly
