Submitted by Ruth Read on Fri, 2013-12-06 09:05

#### Level: E2, E3, L1, L2

This is an adaptation of Murder at the Grange, which my students have always enjoyed.

I wanted to extend the work on calculating with time, so learners have to use and extend timetables and calculate multi-stage journey times. I also thought it would be good to have some female characters!

There’s a version for L1-2 and one for E2-3, although there is some overlap. In the L1-2 version I have used 24-hour times.
