From the back of the book:
Someone has killed the prince! As the prince's bodyguard, you are told by the King that you must find the murderer--or die yourself. At any time in your search you can be killed--it all depends on your resourcefulness, your skill, and your ability to outwit your pursuers!
Murder in Irliss is a solo adventure--the reader is given the plot, the adventure, and a series of scene selections.
