I loved the ambitious and unusual approach' - SOPHIE HANNAH________________________________________In a town full of secrets... Someone was murdered. Someone went to prison. And everyone's a suspect. Can you uncover the truth?Dear Reader - enclosed are all the documents you need to solve a case.

It starts with the arrival of two mysterious newcomers to the small town of Lockwood, and ends with a tragic death.

Someone has already been convicted of this brutal murder and is currently in prison, but we suspect they are innocent.

What's more, we believe far darker secrets have yet to be revealed.

Throughout the Fairway Players' staging of All My Sons and the charity appeal for little Poppy Reswick's life-saving medical treatment, the murderer hid in plain sight.

Yet we believe they gave themselves away. In writing. The evidence is all here, between the lines, waiting to be discovered.
