Inspector NoClue’s Murder Mystery — A Classic Comic Whodunit

The Black Fedora Presents: Church Street Daughters of the Late Unpleasantness Garden, Gun & Gin Club Mystery

The Church Street Daughters of the Late Unpleasantness have held their monthly Garden, Gun & Gin Club since back when such decent ladies knew their place in society, before miniskirts, meter maids, and men wearing shorts ruined everything. And certainly there had been more than a few meetings which dissolved into a bit of hair-pullin’, heir-provin’, and homemade hare-puddin’ pitching. Still until this new sort of female up and invited herself, the crème of Charleston’s ladies hadn’t ever had to dirty their white gloves with something so revoltingly common as a … murder!

Featuring the five o’clock shadow blue-haired detectives (the more masculine cast members, which might not be saying a lot), it’s a murder mystery with manners.
