You’re invited to the holiday party of the year! Betty Crosby, wife of famous football star Joseph Crosby, is hosting her annual Christmas Party fundraiser in her home. This year’s theme is Winter Wonderland, and celebrities and society’s elite are vying for an invitation.

Betty’s parties are marked with her “Big Reveal” of her Christmas Tree. Select photographers capture her big moment each year as the doors to the “Christmas Room” swing open and there stands Betty, clad in a designer dress and tiara, placing the star atop the giant tree. This year though, when the doors swing open, the guests find Betty has been murdered!

Who killed her? Why? How? Question the suspects and find the killer, all while giving back this holiday season as you host The Winter Wonderland Murder!

Great time! This was our second murder mystery party and it generates huge fanfare each time. The mysteries are set up to be challenging but not overly challenging and its great that everyone can participate without knowing who the killer is beforehand! This company is great to work with and is always accommodating to questions.

The best party – EVER! Shot in the Dark Mysteries made the planning so easy that we could focus on making our basement look like an 80s prom. Our theme was “Chiller Thriller” and we had a blast decorating. Every person that came said they had so much fun and wanted to host their own parties. The idea that no knows who the killer is works so well. Thanks Shot in the Dark Mysteries for providing an easy, fabulous way to have fun with friends!

I love Shot in the Dark mysteries! They made so many of our parties (birthdays, new years, just because!) extra special by getting our friends engaged in solving the crimes! They’re such a great value, and even our friends that aren’t extroverts can get into being a character and sleuthing. I also love that I am able to host and participate in the murder mystery! So much fun!!
