Gaelle was the "victim" in a murder-mystery weekend at a hotel in Australia's Blue Mountains. Just as the "crime" was about to be committed, she was rescued by a stranger, who hadn't realized it was a game.

He reminded her of an Irish wolfhound-- large and gentle in appearance, but perfectly capable of savaging an innocent sheep!
