Stirling Hall was built and designed in the 1500's, and the grand estate boasts over 200 rooms, long corridors, stables, and various rooms for entertaining. It is a stunning display of opulence, with an extensive art collection, tapestries, and a magnificent grand piano. The Lord of the manor, Lord Henry Westby, has no son, and Ambrose Haines, a distant relative will inhert not only the manor but marry Lady Lila, Lord Westby's only daughter.
And today, like any other day, servants are preparing the manor, and its inhabitants, for the day's activities. That is, until a woman was found dead in a small foyer in the west wing of Sterling Hall. There was a small amount of blood on the side of her head, but otherwise no clues as to how she died.
CJPL invites you to our version of Stirling Hall to meet Lord and Lady Westby, daughter Lady Lila, her fiance Ambrose Haines, butler Walter Eaton, and ladies maid Eudora Crane, as you interrogate and question them to identify who the young woman is, how she was killed, by whom, and most importantly, why.
