Overview
Why should Dorothy Parker's friends be the only ones making "enviable names" in "science, art, and parlor games"? Dorothy can play with the best of them--as she sets out to prove at a New Year's Eve party at the Algonquin Hotel. Since the swanky soiree is happening in the penthouse suite of swashbuckling star Douglas Fairbanks, some derring-do is called for. How about a little game of "Murder"?

Each partygoer draws a card to be detective, murderer, or victim. But young Broadway starlet Bibi Bibelot trumps them all when her dead body is found in the bathtub. No one knows who the killer is, but one thing is for sure--they won't be making gin in that bathtub.

When more partiers are put in peril, it becomes clear the game is indeed on, and it's up to Dorothy, surprise guest Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and the members of the Round Table to stay alive--and relatively sober--long enough to find the killer...
