A new school year is under way, and English teacher turned reluctant amateur sleuth Emily Taylor has been roped into directing Ellington High's fall play production. With the help of the new junior high English teacher, Destiny Willis, their production of Clue is soon ready to take the stage. The students are especially thrilled when James Bodley, a hometown favorite with a rising star on Broadway, agrees to help out at rehearsals.
But when the drama king, Bodley, is found murdered-strung up like Mr. Boddy, the play's victim, was supposed to be!-Emily vows to find the person behind this heinous killing. Unfortunately, the list of suspects is as long as her cast roll. Could it be his new love...or her resentful daughter? Or maybe his scorned high school sweetheart? Or was the death less about love and more about his betrayal... possibly of the theater seamstress, baker, or woman from his past?
With the days ticking down to the first showing, Emily is under the gun to find out who the real killer is before another murder takes center stage.
