This Comedy-Mystery is set in a 1980s American Ski Chalet and opens with a thump... as Jane falls down the stairs playing Sardines in the dark! As her friends gather in shock around her corpse, Jane stands up and cries out "Tripped, hell! I was pushed! I've been murdered!" Kitty is tasked with helping Jane discover who killed her, so that after clearing her last 75 demerits, will finally (after nearly 200 years) be able to pass through the pearly gates!

HUGH, a handsome actor, middle aged male.
