(Silver Spring, MD) - Mistress, murderer, victim, spouse? Thrill-seekers will find them all in Investigation Discovery's interactive online experience launching today, IsItADeadlyAffair.com.

With ID unleashing clues among multiple online platforms via videos, graphics, micro-sites, and social media, fans become investigators as they are led through a maze of broken faith and betrayal.

With Susan Lucci as a guide, participants are able to knock down closed bedroom doors, navigate secret trysts, and lay bare salacious liaisons as they follow the twists and turns of the fictional love triangle. The experience has been quietly introduced in the DEADLY AFFAIRS (#DeadlyAffairs) on-air promo, and fans can go online now to IsItADeadlyAffair.com to start unraveling the mystery.
