Shadow over Westongrove Manor


incl. VAT

Somebody attempted to poison the old company patriarch, Anthony Westongrove. But Anthony survived the cowardly murder attempt and is now trying to find the perpetrator so he can remove them from his will.


Some time ago, the old company patriarch and rich businessman Anthony Westongrove invited his children to the grand family manor to celebrate his 70th birthday yesterday.

Once all of the family members arrived at the manor on Friday afternoon, an extravagant feast was served at 7:00 pm. It promised to be a wonderful evening ...

But the birthday celebration came to an unpleasant end when Anthony was rushed to hospital during the night after feeling faint. Concerned, the entire family stayed at Westongrove Manor and waited for the head of the family to make his return. Today, on Saturday afternoon, Anthony was finally released from the hospital. His unconsciousness turned out to be caused by poisoning. It would appear that one of the guests was after his blood.

Anthony wishes to resolve the matter within the family. Which is why everyone present has come together again this evening. The question is: What happened yesterday evening? Who tried to kill Westongrove?
