The storyline for this murder mystery reflects REAL LIFE EVENTS that took place in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. Half of the roles are based on people who actually lived and worked in the city.

Murder She Ryhmed: DELUXE Downloadable Al Capone Gangster Murder Mystery Party KitBy October 24, 1928, Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, a thriving city on the Canadian prairie, had earned its reputation as a “Little Chicago.” Not only was it filled with vice and corruption, but it was also a place where “Scarface” Al Capone himself called the shots.

Purchasing bootleg liquor from a network of suppliers, Capone stashed the contraband in the tunnels beneath Main Street before shipping it to the States via the Canadian National Railroad and the Grand Trunk Line. As "The Boss," he was in charge and local authorities reported directly to him.

Yet, one individual proved to be a threat to the “status quo” . . .

As Chief of Police Wally Wilson’s cook and housekeeper, Mary Kelly eavesdropped on conversations that could embarrass some very important people in Moose Jaw. When her employment was abruptly terminated, she began roaming the streets of the city, writing limericks and seeking work.

If loose lips sink ships, then Kelly’s boat may have sprung a serious leak. For, when she has a bit too much to drink at Mamie’s Saloon, she’s been known to tell tantalizing tales the Mounties would eagerly gobble up as evidence that can be used to clean up a city.

What fate awaits her? Who would line up to permanently silence her loose lyrics? What do these resonant rhymes reveal, and how far is Kelly willing to go to expose “The Boss’s” influence on Moose Jaw’s public officials? Are cryptic clues woven into her vitriolic verses? All will soon be neatly resolved - and revealed.

Prime Suspects


Owner of Mamie’s Saloon
“The Boss” maintains an office at Mamie’s. Her lucrative watering hole would be in jeopardy if the Mounties came to town.

Right-hand man to “The Boss”
He does whatever “The Boss” wants. If someone needs to be taught a lesson, Jake is the perfect tutor.

Wally Wilson
Chief of Police
It’s profitable for him to “look the other way.” What did Mary hear and see when she worked for him?

Lily Lu
Head Chinawoman
She runs the Chinese population that built the railroad. None of the respectable people of Moose Jaw want them to live next door, so they've taken up residence in the tunnels.

William Dunhill
He says he wants to clean up Moose Jaw, but "The Boss" has let him know who really runs the city. What possible threat could Mary Kelly pose to him?

Roxie Rosen
Personal Assistant to “The Boss”
She arranges everything for him. It's the best job she's ever had and she likes being close to the person who really runs Moose Jaw.
