A Sampling from the Introduction:


“Ladies and gentlemen, distinguished guests, and cherished friends, we gather here today to celebrate the extraordinary life of a true visionary, Wilbur Covington. As we look around this gathering of illustrious individuals, we are reminded of the profound impact he had on countless lives and the legacy he leaves behind. Included among our guests are his devoted children, his loving fiancée, and the affluent members of our community who wish to pay their respects. 


As most of us know, however, remarkable people are often hiding scandalous secrets. While Wilbur lived a life that left a sizable legacy, what will that legacy entail? It is no mystery that many of the people in Wilbur's life are less than virtuous; among them are the vain, the corrupt, the greedy, and the guilty.

With that being said… at the end of the night, three of you will be dead.”
