After 15 years of dedicated writing, JR Hartley’s bestseller, ‘The Amazing Life of Benjamin Harrison’, has finally been finished and launched onto general sale. Keen to raise awareness of the book release, the author has been touring the country hosting book signings in local libraries. With great anticipation and excitement, the Benjamin Harrison Presidential Site is hosting the Indianapolis book signing.

This evening, JR Hartley and his agent, Paige Turner, were hoping for a big turnout. However, before the book signing could commence, JR Hartley was discovered dead in the library. Contrary to popular belief, he wasn’t actually old enough to have died of natural causes. It looks like somebody’s fingers did the talking and choked the life out of him! But who could have wanted this harmless man dead, and why?

To make matters worse, the local police are on strike. Since the guests have to wait for the detective to arrive, they are needed to help solve the crime.

Join us for this riveting interactive experience by murder mystery author Jo Smedley, Working in teams of eight, guests will interrogate the suspects, gather clues, and solve the crime. A prize will be awarded to the winning team each evening.

Want an event your friends and family to solve the crime? We want to accommodate your group so please reach out to  the Special Events and Marketing Manager: (317) 631-1888 or events@bhpsite.org. to discuss room buy-out options for up to 10 people!

Guests will travel from room to room enjoying performances throughout the National Historic Landmark home of President Benjamin Harrison, including up and down two flights of narrow stairs (elevator assistance is available).

We recommend this performance for children age 10 and up due to the darkness of the home, length of the performance, and subject matter.

Please direct questions or concerns to the Special Events and Marketing Manager: (317) 631-1888 or events@bhpsite.org.

This event will be Covid 19 compliant.
