About the Mystery
The year is 1954 and the beloved president of Indiana University, Herman B Wells, is holding a party at his Brown County cabin. Wells needs to build more support for Dr. Alfred Kinsey, who has stirred up more trouble than ever with his second book. Herman has invited an influential and colorful set of friends from Bloomington and Nashville to meet Kinsey and his team of researchers. Wells has also lined up his good friend, Hoagy Carmichael to provide the entertainment.
