  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

A 1952 play by Agatha Christie adapted from her 1947 radio play, "Three Blind Mice", The Mousetrap has earned fame and infamy ever since.

The plot (which probably seems very Seinfeld Is Unfunny given how many things in it have since become overused or overfamiliar tropes) takes place in a guest house called Monkswell Manor run by a Mr. and Mrs. Ralston. One night the Ralstons and several guests are snowed in during a blizzard with the radio announcing that a serial killer is on the loose--one who uses the song "Three Blind Mice" as a Leitmotif. And the more and more time passes, the more and more reason there is to believe that the killer may be inside Monkswell Manor even as we speak. When one of the guests indeed ends up murdered suspicion starts falling on anyone and everyone in the manor. Suffice to say, there are a ton of twists which unfold slowly over the entire course of the tale. And that's *all* we're going to say.

By the way, the murderer is Spoiler S. Spoilerson.
