Nantucket Murder Mystery
The Wauwinet Caper

This story takes place on Nantucket in the early 1970s, where Mr. Winship Cate, who lives in Wauwinet, is prompted by his children to clean out a lot of clutter from his home after his wife Mary has passed away. This task will take up to a month to complete the way his friends and family have sectioned up the house to attack the different projects. The last of the projects to tackle is above the garage. A large beautiful room with windows showing off the fantastic views in every direction. The door leading into the attic has not been opened in the last twenty years and the room is filled with furniture that was left behind from the previous owners after the sale of the house to Winship in the fifties.
