Kaiser Milan fled Hungary in 1945 following its occupation by the Soviet Union as he feared life under a communist society. By 1948 he had built up a reputation among British literary circles as someone who could arrange the sale or purchase of fine literary works. Despite rationing being in existence he managed to arrange relatively lavish dinner parties for those with sufficient funds to purchase such works. If you bought a rare manuscript in the early post war years it would have probably been transferred to you at one of Kaiser’s parties.
Kaiser has been found dead during one of his parties, being held at Peningar Priory to celebrate the sale of the famous “Faulkner manuscript”. We do not believe his death is an accident and have narrowed the list of suspects to the following four people.
Oscar Lewis – The father of the person selling the manuscript.
Lulu Rufus – the current owner (it would appear) of the manuscript.
Roman Romanov – a rich businessman who intended buying the manuscript.
Marlene Barley – Roman’s personal assistant.
Your task is to discover who killed him, how the murder was committed and the motive for such a horrible crime.
