We invite you to enter the world of the mystery. The year is 1891 and The Borlotti Brothers’ Carnival is on tour across Europe. Their next stop is the small town of Oakfield. It has been 20 years since the carnival last came to town but many Oakfield inhabitants still remember the chaos from last time… It’s not just the fortune teller who predicts tragedy this time; the whole carnival is plagued by mystery – missing jewels, mistaken identity and a brutal killing.
