It's 1919 and society is still reeling from the drama of the Russian Revolution. Families have been divided, conflicts have arisen and all of the Russian people live in fear. Yet the revolution did not simply effect the common people but the Russian Royal Family were effected too. The Tsar, his wife and children have all been murdered and the other members of the royal family are nervous to see what their fate may be. As they attempt to escape Russia on board the British HMS Winston, a stoaway is discovered, face-down in blood on one of the lifeboats with a jewel encrusted knife in his back . Who is he? Who murdered him? Why is the dagger covered in jewels and whose is it? These are all questions that you will have to answer as you attempt to discover the mysteries of this Inspector McClue game.
