Show details


The old librarian, Gwendolyn Radcliffe, never forgot that fateful night in June 1962.

Esteban Moreño's lecture on Cuban music was poorly attended.

His meagre audience was composed of herself, a young journalist, his model girlfriend, a Mathematics student and a drunken vagabond.

However, the event made the news when the drunk was found dead beneath the Library less than an hour later.

The police never identified him, but from then on Gwen often felt she could see the haunting shadow of a sleeping man, slumped among the shelves.

Now in 2018, Gwendolyn has discovered that an undercover agent named 'Anillo Rojo' disappeared in London that very same night.

She has hired the master of the supernatural, Jack Daw, to investigate this mystery.

He is looking for bright minded people to join him and unlock the dark past of the Library.

Jack Daw will put you into groups of six, one to focus on each suspect, so bring friends or make new ones on the night.

Dead Quiet has been created with an exhilarating mix of historic facts and classic sixties spy stories.
