On the twelfth day of Christmas,

A murder mystery:

Twelve murder suspects,

Eleven murder suspects,

Ten seats at dinner,

Nine motives to kill,

Eight published writers,

Seven deadly sinners,

Six household members,

Five acts of theft,

Four glasses gone,

Three paintings,

Two lipstick shades,

And a manuscript in a box!
