Who killed Madame Magda?
It’s the quarterly meeting of the Gazillionaire Girls Group, an exclusive club whose membership is comprised of successful women – all of whom made it big without relying upon the other gender. The hostess for this unique gathering is Bertha Brothert, the entertainment guru whose upscale line of products appeals to the nouveau riche.
Brothert’s yacht, “The Perfection,” is the scene of the meeting and a special guest is present to both entertain the Group’s members and to predict their futures. Famed fortuneteller, Madame Magda, pulls out her crystal ball and tells the assembled clique of distinguished daughters of destiny that many good things await them.
Suddenly, though, a shocked expression crosses the mystic’s face as she shudders in horror. The crystal ball, she proclaims, is emphatic in predicting that someone will soon die. The next morning, true to her words, the body of one of the women is found floating nearby the yacht. After investigating the incident, police quickly determine that evidence points toward homicide. Someone’s career has been suddenly and permanently halted by a killer.
Here are the suspects:
Founder and Chairwoman of Bertha Brothert Enterprises. Through grit and determination, she built a successful business empire. Some say insider trading had a lot to do with it.

The skipper of “The Perfection.” She’s been around the world and can tell stories that would make a sailor blush.
