Good Buy, Cruel World is a mystery written for use with Brindlewood Bay, a roleplaying game about a group of elderly women—members of the local Murder Mavens mystery book club—who frequently find themselves investigating (and solving!) real-life murder mysteries.  

(Don't have a copy of Brindlewood Bay yet?  You can grab it over on DriveThruRPG! Or you can support the Kickstarter where you'll find the rules in the Kickstarter preview!)

The Mavens have taken up mall-walking to stay fit, walking the perimeter of the Ambergris Galleria as their schedules allow, ending each circuit with a visit to Speaks Volumes—a bookstore—to browse the paperbacks.

But today's mall-walking is interrupted by the discovery of a body!

Can the Mavens figure out what happened to the owner of Big Laffs—an adult novelty, magic & joke shop—who was found dead in the Galleria's central fountain? Was it a suicide... or something more sinister?

Oh, and in case you need a soundtrack, there's a playlist:
