Al Capone and the Chicago Underworld incorporates some elements of Canasta to the Mystery Rummy series with players scoring various bonuses for collecting complete sets. Sets have varying numbers of cards in them, from Mike Heitler with four cards up to Al Capone with eight. The four types of gavel card make cards accessible everywhere: Agent Meeting´´ searches other players´ hands, ´´Eliot Ness´´ searches the deck, ´´search Warrant´´ looks in the discard pile, and ´´Raid´´ allows you to take an opponent´s already melded cards, provided that you have at least three melded. All these mechanisms help you complete your sets, but also put you on guard against your opponent doing the same.´´
Dying is what changed Mary O´Reilly´s life. Well, actually, coming back from the dead and having the ability to communicate with ghosts is really what did it. Now, a private investigator in rural Freeport, Illinois, Mary´s trying to learn how to incorporate her experience as a Chicago cop and new-found talent into a real job. Her challenge is to solve the mysteries, get real evidence (a ghost´s word just doesn´t hold up in court), and be sure the folks in town, especially the handsome new police chief, don´t think she´s nuts. Twenty-four years ago, a young woman drowned in the swimming pool of a newly elected state senator. It was ruled an accident. But now, as the senator prepares to move on to higher positions, the ghost of the woman is appearing to the Senator´s wife. Mary is hired to discover the truth behind the death. She unearths a connection between the murder and the disappearance of five little girls whose cases, 24 years later, are still all unsolved. As she digs further, she becomes the next target for the serial killers´ quest to tie up all his loose ends. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Erin Spencer.
