(urth) Peace, and colors, and murder, and games

So I'm re-reading Robert Borski on _Peace_, and it's quite clever.

But something else occurs to me.

The characters have, indeed, obvious color associations.  And, well,  
there are clearly some murders in _Peace_.

And that got me thinking about Mrs. Peacock, and Mr. Green, and Mrs.  
White, and Professor Plum, and a nefarious House littered about with  
implements of murder.

I wonder if, just as there's a reading of _Through The Looking Glass  
and what Alice Found There_ as a chess game, there's a reading of  
_Peace_ as a game of _Clue_ (_Cluedo_ to you Brits).  Has anyone  
already traversed this particular path?
