When 41-year-old mother of three, Peggy Carr got struck down with a mystery illness in October 1988, doctors didn’t know what to make of it. After test results showed Peggy had been poisoned, suspicion naturally fell on her new husband Pye.
But this case would prove to be far more complicated. The real perpetrator would only be brought to justice after a long, undercover operation that involved infiltrating a Murder Mystery Weekend held by the biggest high IQ society in the world, Mensa.
