What are people saying about "One-WayTicket To Murder"?

James Gaskin - Participating Actor (Paul Periwinkle)

I had the honor of being a guest performer in "One-Way Ticket to Murder," when it was presented at the Dallas Mystery Writers meeting in December. What a hoot! Excuse me, let me get back into my Paul Periwinkle character, and say, "It was a FABULOUS experience." The characters were vividly drawn, and every one had reason to commit murder. The audience, all mystery crime writers, were baffled as they tried to sort out motive, means, and opportunity for each suspect. Many did figure out the perpetrators, but many didn't. Either way, everyone enjoyed themselves and learned positive lessons about plotting and characters. Even better, everyone had a wonderful time with the story and presentation.

Sandy Steen - Audience Participant

This is a one-way ticket to fun and lots of it!!! A who-done-it that is chock full of great characters, clues and performances. The murder is set on a train headed for Texas in the late 1800s the fun of finding the guilty party is nothing short of a party itself.
