He was discovered dead in his lounge this morning, and someone seems keen on ruining the season of goodwill and glad tidings..but who could it be?

Could it be one of the guests or staff who despised Bob or could this case be much harder to crack? Be fast, Christmas is almost over and the villagers are scared to leave their houses. Bring back joy and merriment to the village by figuring out who among yourselves is hiding the truth. Could it be your favourite colleague or is it the company’s CEO?
