Yes, all you needed was the right name to get into the hat for the prize draw. We have had fun reading the entries. Some were longer than one of the story episodes!
Have the winners been notified or can I still hold out hope?

Actually, the odds are quite good, considering the number of prizes and correct entries.

Oh, goody! Earlier this morning, I told my husband that I did choose the correct murderer. He came in not long ago and asked if I'd won a prize. I told him that I hadn't been notified, so probably not. Now I can tell him there's still hope...he wants my Kindle Keyboard.

It's simply really: the part his head rests on, while appearing solid, is actually two flexible parts. So when the blade comes down, the "victim's" neck quickly slides through the seam.

Probably - as long as it's not an oven, rotisserie, BBQ, or large frying pan.

And definitely NOT a microwave.

Yay I figured out the right murderer. Fingers crossed for a prize.

Good luck to everyone who entered.

I only submitted the murderer and my name. I wasn't sure if all my theorising would be appropriate for the submission
But I got it right, pretty excited And I don't think there was much I could say that hadn't been said.
This was very interesting, and I'd never entered a competition like this.


About when can we expect winners to be notified, the suspense is killing me!

Yippee! This is the first time I figured out the murderer - I guessed in previous contests.

Hoping I win, but happy either way.

I mixed up names here. It was pilotbob. Here's the exercept from the 1st chapter:
Spoiler:
pdurrant uncorked the bottle and poured the green contents into the punch bowl, which almost erupted before calming back down. He continued to stir vigorously, as he added more "secret spices" to his brew.

"Hey, pdurrant -- let me taste the punch now" asked pilotbob, waving his empty cup. "It looks like it's packing quite a punch now! Get it? Punch ... packing a punch?"

A muted groan ran around the room at pilotbob's latest, and worst, attempt at holiday humor.

"Sorry, no one can have any more punch now - it has to simmer a while -- I'm using my own family recipe for mulled wine." explained pdurrant.

"And it even contains its own heat source" observed Dr. Drib, using his pipe to point out the tiny green flames dancing on the bubbling surface of pdurrant's witches brew.


"Don't forget pooh -- you're in charge of popping the corn to string on the tree." said dreams.

"Putting a chicken in charge of the corn" sniggered pilotbob, emptying his cup and heading towards the window. "I'll just open this window a bit to clear out Dr. Drib's smoke - it's so thick that someone could get murdered in this room and no one would notice."

The drawing for prizes will occur in the next couple of days. Winners will be notified by PM. When all prizes have been awarded (and accepted) we will publicly announce the list of lucky members. This can take a couple of days for everyone to respond.

So be patient - if you submitted a correct guess, check your Private Messages daily to see if you are a winner (Click on Your Notifications in the upper left screen).

Good luck to all those who guessed moi!
