'Death of a Volunteer (USA)'  Game Synopsis


15+ (cast of 8)

It's 1944. The war in Europe is still raging on. To honor the unsung heroes of the home-front, Paul E. Tischan is to present journalist Charlotte Gaffe with the "Volunteer of the Year" award. But as she steps forward to receive the prize, she drops dead on the podium of what looks at first like a heart attack. But was it? When Inspector Flic arrives on the scene, everyone becomes a suspect. It certainly looks like "no good deed ever goes unpunished..."
