Death day Celebrations
Bob Cakes is celebrating his 50th birthday and he has gone to extremes to make the day a memorable and lavish one. The happy event is being held at the top of the tallest building in the city. The Penthouse suite is large and filled with the latest in, well, everything. To add to the opulence, there are stylish birthday decorations and food all around. Gathered within the penthouse are many famous and elite guests, chatting and enjoying the party.
Bob has a bit of a murky past and seems to be part of every deal and happening that occurs within New City. This success and elevated status breeds jealousy and animosity as well as revenge. Reaching this level of prominence may be due to helping make some careers and of course destroying others. Many of these business dealings has led Bob to make enemies over the years.
The party is in full swing, as the guest enjoy their food, drink and spectacular views over the city. These happy people represent the cream of the crop, the rich, the famous and everybody who is somebody. Are all these guest friends of Bob? He would like to think so as he gazes over the gathering and festivities.
Everybody at the party is gathered together to sing ‘Happy Birthday’ and to have a look at the fantastic cake being wheeled out. Bob stands impassively as the throng sings their song, he takes a deep breath and blows, extinguishing the candles on the masterpiece of a cake. Just as Bob finishes blowing, there is a loud explosion that fills the room. Once the confusion abates and the room becomes clear, Bob is found lying very still on the floor, not far from where he had just been standing. Somebody calls the paramedics, but upon arrival, finds Bob dead.
What was minutes before a day for celebrating life, has turned into a place of death instead. Who and why would anybody do such a horrific thing so publicly. Only those with sharp eyes and cunning minds can detangle this mystery of murder and expose the audacious murderer.
