Murder in Mystery Manor
Someone got killed, right in the guts. â€œThe murderer could be any one of us!â€ everyone realised. The veneer of genteel respectability, already stretched to breaking point, was stretched even more to breaking point.
â€œMa-a-a-a-a-a!â€ said the famous Inspector Blossom, whose gimmick is that heâ€™s a goat. â€œI must ask that nobody leave Mystery Manor,â€ said Dr Edmonton, Inspector Blossomâ€™s interpreter (also a goat).
Inspector Blossom talked to everyone and found lots of clues and then gathered everyone together in the drawing room. â€œIt was Dave!â€ he said, via his interpreter.
â€œItâ€™s a fair cop,â€ said Dave.
â€œIâ€™m glad he confessed because I ate all the evidence,â€ thought Inspector Blossom to himself, in goat language.
