User Summary: While visiting an English nobleman at his country estate, a psychic warns you about a trap that is in store for you. Can you avoid falling into the trap and being framed for a crime you did not commit?
Guillermo's Thoughts: This horror/mystery gamebook has both a good story and challenging gameplay. I did not find it as involving as some other entries in the series (such as Invitation to Murder or The Sicilian Contract), but it's certainly not bad. As an aside, having a photograph as a cover illustration is a nice touch.
