Shortest murder mystery game

Which murder mystery game is the shortest? Which murder mystery game can be easiest modify to take an hour and a half.

My response:

In my experience the games with the fewest guests tend to be shortest. So if you were to play something like The Final Curtain with the minimum 7 guests then it will be shorter than if you had the full 14.

However, whether you can play it in 90 minutes is another question. You might be able to if you started playing straight away (so everyone would need their character in advance, and be ready to play). Plus you wouldn't have time for a debrief.

I hope that helps - I'm afraid 90 minutes is really short for one of these games.
