Inspector Piper: Murder Mystery: "A Tale of Bootleggers"
It is March 1911. Another day, another case for Piper. With deaths now sitting at three in just two days then time is of the essence. He has been called to Clitheroe to help identify and dismantle a group of bootleggers, before they can cause any more deaths. Word on the street is that an illegal alcohol smuggling ring have begun to trade in the city, passing off as a reputable business. This alcohol is made with cheap ingredients and unsafely; causing serious harm or even death to those who ingest it. The hospital has reported 12 admissions over the last 3 days of suspected alcohol poisoning.
Cases have been known to have originated from a local pub, the market and even from a local church. There have been strange goings on at a local mill; with it recently having been purchased by an unnamed patron. A whiskey shop and local emporium have also been noted to be good lines of enquiry, and you have a least one witness wanting to talk to you to provide you with some more information.
You have two tasks; find out who is behind this evil scheme and also work out the storage location of the alcohol, so it can be destroyed before it causes any more harm.
Go forward now to have a discussion with the local detective and receive your list of suspects. To meet up with your detective you will have to head to Clitheroe Castle.
