Case of the Strangled Parrot
Case of the Strangled Parrot

A baffling assassination of a minor government official has occurred in London in 1925. It is a case without any motive and no clues to the identity of the killers. Famous detectives become involved trying to solve the case often with humorous results. It becomes a high profile incident with the public as the investigation begins to drag along. Public announcements from Scotland Yard dwindle down to "it is an on-going investigation". Everyone knew it meant no one had a clue about anything.. To add to the confusion the MPs in parliament begin to take the heat from their constituents. They create a special investigation board to elect their own investigator to take over the case. Now there are opposing forces investigating the same case leading to confusion and conflicts.
