A mysterious invitation brings an unlikely group of guests together at a secret location in Venice – a Black and White themed masquerade.

They are instructed to meet a gondola at a specific place in Venice at a specific time. As the gondola glides beneath the Bridge of Sighs, each person is to don a blindfold.

Once arrived, the blindfold is traded for a mask, and the masquerade begins.

No one knows why they were invited, the reason for the party, or who invited them.

But when a man is found dead in the catacombs beneath the ancient building – a man wearing a red mask and cape – suddenly these strangers are tasked with discovering his killer in order to be allowed to leave.

Who is their mysterious host? Why were they all invited? Who are the others in attendance, and are they connected in any way? And most importantly, who was the victim, The Man in the Red Mask and Cape!

Watch Trailer

This mystery is a 3/5 on the Angel Rating Scale. Murder by stabbing, but references to other weapons, descriptions of blood and crime scenes, guns, poison, mentions of an alleged suicide in the back story (ie: not one of the characters present), prescription narcotics, alcohol and in some versions affairs (not between suspects, but with hypothetical people not present). Other mentions of situations listed here that could offend – conservative audiences and religious groups should ALWAYS stick with non-murder, 5-Angel rated mysteries to avoid potentially being offended by content in a pretend murder scenario.
