An eccentric business tycoon: an automotive giant has decided he will happily invest in the business interests of a set of daring idnividuals who will take part in a little game he wants to play.
Mr. Ardis, manufacturer of automobiles of all sorts, has given a group of people a large bus, the Lexicon schoolbus model, and as a challenge, has required that the group drive the bus 10,000 miles, arriving in Detroit within a certain time.
But that is not all. Not only must the group make this grueling road trip at a breakneck pace, they must make it carrying 5 million dollars on the bus, turning in every dollar to the automobile magnate in the end to receive an even larger cash payout.
It would be a disaster if some unscrupulous crime boss were to learn of this, wouldn’t it?
Some of them are wannabe automotive bigwigs themselves, others might have other uses for the money, and still others might not be all they seem. It will certainly be quite the trip.
This story is largely based on “The Money Miler” by Homer Ean Flint and the story was his last before his mysterious death in 1924. There is no need to know anything of the author or this work to play. Unlike the original work, I’m actually setting this one in the modern day. Even so, the sensational criminal and mystery elements will still be there.
