The Plot

Christmas Eve Murder Mystery Party: 'Twas the Night Before MurderThe mansion of greeting-card magnate Norton Pole was lit up like a Christmas tree. And, well it should be on the eve before the annual holiday. The festive occasion was a gathering of a few relatives and business associates, all celebrating another year of record profits (or is it?) for Polar Cards. 

The assembled group knew everything that could be known about Pole, from north to south, and from east to west. What they didn't know was that, over dinner, Pole would make announcements that could change their holiday seasons forever. At least, they could've had not someone decided to take fate to task and end Pole's career permanently.

For, on Christmas morning, his body was found lying under the huge tree in the great room, a startling contrast to the colorful decorations. But, who would do such a thing?

After all, Pole's passion was to produce the perfect paeans to postal patrons who patiently perused each massaged message. Why would someone want to end such a lucid life? Was it Pole's news that had triggered such a rude response? 

Or, had someone taken the opportunity to pay back a dubious debt and carry out a vendetta that had been held inside for years? Only stalwart sleuthing and superior skills would uncover a killer and deck the halls with calls of "golly."


The Suspects


Donald McPolar
Spokesperson for Polar Cards. The cheerful Santa Claus look-alike has been the the company's symbol for 20 years. Could it be time for a new image?

Sutton Pole
Norton's son and the heir to his fortune. Sutton was earmarked to take over his father's business. Why would he be suspected of murder?

Greta Cads  
Graphic artist and greeting card designer. Her unique touches on each design have won awards for Polar Cards. Lately, she's changed the way she does the designs.

Willy Wright
Poet and copywriter. He takes Greta's designs and adds the words that make recipients smile, blush and feel good.

Nona Cruncher
Accountant and Norton Pole's financial advisor. She knows where every penny is spent - and where every dollar is hidden.

Minnie Hoppy Rayburns 
Former greeting card rival. Her birthday card company was bought out by Polar Cards. She now reports to Norton Pole and isn't happy about the arrangement.

Weston Pole 
Norton's first cousin. Since he arrived two years ago, lots of things have changed at Polar.

Priscilla Ink
Print shop owner. Her company has been printing Polar Cards for years. Has she been cutting corners to increase her profit margin?
