On January 4, 2015, I will be shutting down the server that hosts The TV IV website. It has been a very long time since I've been able to put any decent amount of time into the site, and ad revenue is plummeting. I think it is time to shut it down or hand it off to someone who can keep it going properly. If you are interested in taking over the site's code and data, contact administrators at --CygnusTMtalk

Plot Overview

At a party to celebrate his latest perfume, Alex D'Arcy gets confrontational with several people before he pops a shrimp appetizer in his mouth and then collapses and dies. After it's determined that D'Arcy died from an allergic reaction to walnut oil, Amos and Peter sniff out the suspects, including a rival perfumier, his hated son (who handed him the shrimp appetizer) and three lovely ladies, one of whom just may have given him the 'kiss of death'.
