Story Notes:

Just a little idea which tickled me; over the next eight days, I'll post an update a night, each with a little more information from two people who were at Freudesheim on the day that Anna died. All that is left for you to do is to work out who killed her.


There is an answer and it is guessable. I've checked my timeline four or five times, and even drawn myself a little diagram, so I am as confident as I can be that it all works perfectly, but if you spot anything that you think is obviously a mistake, please point it out!


I haven't given it a mature rating - this first update is a little more gory than I realised when I wrote it, but otherwise there's nothing in it to shock or offend (unless the word 'breasts' titillates you as much as it does one of the characters)


So, I hope that you enjoy my game!

Posting this in a rush as I am running late for something tonight - I am therefore not proofing. Have read it through twice before, so hopefully all ok, but I might have to correct a couple of small details later. If so, I'll let you all know! Sorry about this!

Sorry about last night's offering - I've read it back properly, now, and although I'm itching to change some of the English, nothing substantial is wrong so I shall leave it as is in fairness to you. I hope that it hasn't put you off from guessing!
