Plot Edit

How did it all start? Well, if you ask me, it was the new law to ban sweet food and drinks. The Sugar Prohibition changed this city. Sure, public health is better, but public safety? Not so much. When using sugar became a crime, suddenly the city turned out to be full of crooks. The police work overtime fighting big criminals, and common people with their common problems have only one option left--call a private detective.
