Why so harsh?

  • The Murder Master® delivers a premium service, which includes preparation of materials for your Murder, and printing of those materials. 
  • The Murder Master’s fees include other costs such as royalties to writers, which are payable whether an event goes on or not.
  • Other costs such as flights and accommodation are incurred shortly after your booking.
  • As such, the Murder Master® incurs costs immediately upon your booking.
Also:

The Murder Master® is committed to hosting your event and therefore unable to accept another booking for the date of your function; given that most bookings of his services are made several months ahead, the likelihood of him being able to secure another booking should your event be cancelled, is minimal.
