Join us at the turn of the 20th century for the second season of Murder at the Conservatory. Don your sleuthing cap and help Detective Burdock Loames crack the case in…The Mystery of the Immortal Elixir.

A mysterious manuscript containing a bizarre botanical encyclopedia of otherworldly plants has surfaced. It is written in a language unbeknownst to anyone alive, defying all attempts of brilliant linguists and genius cryptographers to lay bare its secrets. One of the many theories about the manuscript is that its pages hold a recipe for the Elixir of Life, granting immortality to they who consume it.

Now, a brilliant young cryptographer claims to have deciphered the enigmatic codex and soon afterward is discovered murdered in the recently completed Conservatory of Flowers.
