Inspired by Sleuth - A Murder Mystery by Eric N. Miller

It's late at night, a murder has been committed, and you, inspector, are tasked with finding the culprit. This reinterpretation of the classic DOS game Sleuth has been cloned in Javascript (with the kind permission of the author of the original) so that people the world over can play it in their browsers.

Explore the house with the cursor keys, and use commands in the text interface to interact with the world around you. EXAMINE items, but not before you GET the magnifying glass. QUESTION the suspects, and finally GATHER them together in the murder room before you ACCUSE one of them of the murder. But watch out! As you traverse the mansion, the killer will grow more and more suspicious of your presence, and before long you may find yourself the subject of his (or her) murderous intentions!
