GAME START

This is just a background story I've came up with - No clues are in this

Mr. Kevin Boddy is the guest of honour to Mrs. Penelope Peacock's final party at Arlington Grange as the lady of the manor before she sells the house to Mr. Boddy. The Dining Room was filled with a buffet prepared by the cook, Mrs. Lesley White and all of the guests' needs are being looked after by Mrs. Peacock's butler and brand new maid, Jim Ash and Hazel Froggart. All of the invited guests arrived and were enjoying themselves using every square inch of the Grange, finding things to do in the many rooms inside and having either a pleasant stroll outside or using the sporting facilities - most of the guests, at the suggestion of Mrs. Peacock's neice, Miss Emma Peach, had a pool party although Mr. Boddy refused to join in the fun as did many of the older guests.

What was meant to be a time of excitement turned into moments of argument after argument after argument with Mr. Boddy and one guest after another until the inevitable happened. M. David Brunette, the Belgian art dealer made an attempt on Mr. Boddy's life but if it wasn't for the mysterious Miss Hye-Kyo Scarlet, M. Brunette would have succeeded in his murder attempt but he was able to make an escape from the Grange.

Both Detective Inspector John Grey and Doctor Guy Black turned up; the former to conduct an investigation and the latter to check on Mr. Boddy's health

The doctor stayed at the Grange to make sure nothing else goes wrong but the Inspector had other business to conduct leaving the Grange

It seemed that all was the animosity had died down after that incident or so everyone thought, during that evening - Miss Scarlet ran into the foyer of the Grange, ran the gong until all the guests arrived and announced the death of Mr. Boddy.

One of 15 people committed the murder but who was it?
Colonel Robert Mustard - Retired SAS Colonel who cares deeply for Mrs. Peacock
Professor Paul Plum - An Archaeologist who relies on Mrs. Peacock's financial backing
Reverend Richard Green - The pastor of the parish but is he a saint or a sinner
M. David Brunette - A Belgian Art Dealer, he already made one attempt on Boddy's life but did he return to try again?
Detective Inspector John Grey - A CID police officer, he was the first officer on scene BUT a witness said he saw the inspector's car near the Grange moments before the murder...
Judge Charles Mauve - A Crown Court judge with a reputation of taking the law into his own hands
Mr. Jim Ash the Butler - Mrs. Peacock's devoted butler for over 30 years and makes no secret he despises his new employer
Mrs. Penelope Peacock - The lady of Arlington Grange who due to financial issues had to sell up
Miss Hye-Kyo Scarlet - She accompanied Mr. Boddy to the Grange, no one knows who or what she is
Mrs. Lesley White - Mrs. Peacock's loyal cook who knows all the family secrets
Miss Emma Peach - Mrs. Peacock's young niece who was always against the sale of the house and would go to any lengths to protect her inheritance
Madame Francis Rose - A famous astrologer for both Newspaper and Television, she has a talent for predicting death
Mrs. Meadow-Brook - Mr. Boddy's ex-Wife, she came to England to partake in a fashion show but she knew where her ex would be and she had an opportunity to meet with Boddy
Miss Hazel Froggart the Maid - The newest member of staff at the Grange, she's already taken a shine to Mr. Boddy

Can you solve Who killed Mr. Boddy, Where at Arlington Grange, and with What weapon?
