When a college reunion ends in murder, everybody is a suspect. Who did it? Where? With what weapon?
It’s a modern-day twist on the classic Parker Brothers board game “Clue,” where the usual suspects are glued to their smartphones and social media accounts during a tense dinner party in Presidio Heights. What are they all hiding? What are they oversharing? Before the night’s end, old secrets will be revealed and new secrets will be formed.
If you have a Twitter account, feel free to interact with these colorful characters as the homicide and subsequent investigation unfold in real-time. Ask them questions. Try to trip them up. Make them confess. Can you trust what they tell you? If you don’t have a Twitter account, you can still follow along by visiting the @ClueTFF Twitter page during the festival. The whole narrative will also be published on Storify for posterity after the event.
Full disclosure: I am beyond excited about being a featured writer (contest winner) for this year’s festival. However, I have never written a murder mystery before. I have also never written a multi-character story on Twitter (or any social media) before. I am beginning to think it’s a bit insane to attempt doing both for the first time, at the same time. Nevertheless, this will definitely be an adventure, and we can never have too many of those. So grab your magnifying glasses, your casebooks, and your Sherlockian nicotine patches. I hope you will join me for the ride.
