A Motive for Murder?… 

In the early 1970′s a murder took place at Lumley Castle.  Lord Marcus Lumley, the aristocratic but impoverished owner of Lumley Castle has been found dead. He appears to have had a heart attack despite the fact that a recent check up found him to be in excellent health. Lord Lumley spent his last evening in the company of his wife, a family friend and a Clairvoyant he had invited to the castle. Was his death due to natural causes or did one of his companions have…. a motive for murder?
