Wanting to do a murder mystery at the office

Please would you be able to advise me as to how I would able able to host a Murder Mystery at the office during work hours?

I have an office that has approx. 60 employees and to bust office morale I wanted to do a murder mystery for Halloween. To bust sales we often play games. Would you be able to recommend a murder mystery we could play or provide a site that I might be able to purchase and interactive murder mystery suitable for an office?

My response:

I would love to recommend an interactive murder mystery party such as Hollywood Lies to you. Not only do I think it's a great game, but during it the players form into teams to "produce" a trailer for their next movie. That makes it great for team-building as well.

(I also ran it for my workplace.)

However, the most Hollywood Lies can cope with is 32 players, so you would either have to run it twice, or choose a different game.

For 60 players, I therefore suggest that you look at Mysteries-on-the-Net as some of their games cater for 60 (and more!).
