This game doesn't just set you the task of solving one case but 21. The cases all involve five authors of murder books, who are collectively known as the Midnight Murder Club.

All the cases take place at the hotel in which everyone is staying. The five writers are all amusing stereotypes and the investigations will reveal plenty of funny facts. However, solving the cases is still a matter of digging for information and working out what it all means.

Information comes your way from a number of sources. You can plant bugs in rooms, use cameras to monitor rooms, break into rooms, or use the files. Phone calls to and from the characters can also be useful, and often provide a few laughs.

A lot of guesswork goes on but its a very entertaining game that takes a more lighthearted view of the whole detective genre.
