It’s 1952, and P. U. Barnhum’s world-famous three-ring circus has come to Podunk! The town is overwhelmed by the excitement, the lights, the animals, and the—dead body of the ringmaster. Yes, there lies Rhett Coate, shot to death right in the center ring. The circus owner, P. U. Barnhum, is in a tizzy.
Was the murderer a fellow circus performer, like Malcolm Laff the clown, or the trapeze act Jess Fling/Ann Ketch? Was it one of the carnival attractions, like Christa Bawle the fortuneteller or Isalotta Herr the bearded lady? Or maybe it was a member of the audience like Arlo Kell, someone with cause to dread the reappearance of a Podunkian who ran off to join the circus…
But hold onto your popcorn—the murderer may be YOU!
