One of the clients at Miguela's restaurant was poisoned, and I don't think it was food poisoning.

"Someone poisoned Miguela's husband at her restaurant, scaring away customers. I need to track down the culprit."


Detective: Ok, Miguela. Tell me what exactly happened at your restaurant.

Miguela Lawless: It was just a few days after I opened up my restaurant, "The Alexander". I was serving dinner to my own husband, when he suddenly fell ill!

Miguela Lawless: I had to temporarily close the place down because my clients accuse me of serving spoiled food!

Detective: I assume that's not true. Your pies are legendary, Miguela.

Miguela Lawless: You're a dear! Yes, that's why I asked you to take this case. I know it was a case of poisoning.


Detective: The question is: was Mike Lawless poisoned by accident, or was he the target?

If you fail:

Detective: I don't think it was a case of poisoning. I'm not saying it was Miguela's fault, but maybe one of their employees made a mistake?

If you win:

Detective: Strange. I thought that someone wanted to ruin Miguela's reputation by poisoning someone at random... but the witnesses are unanimous - the dish was served only to Mike.

Detective: Why would someone want to poison an ordinary office worker? Hmmm. I guess I need to visit the restaurant.

Crime scene search: A Table for NoneEdit

Detective: I need your help, Mike. Could you tell me anything about the poisoning?

Mike Lawless: Oh my. No, not really. i was enjoying my meal, when suddenly I felt very ill. They took me to the hospital. I was half conscious, I don't remember much.

Detective: Right, don't worry. I'll just check the restaurant for clues

If you fail:

Detective: Nothing 's here. Maybe the poison wasn't in food... But what was it then, a poisonous dart? Nah, I'm runnning in circles here.

If you win:

Detective: A-ha, a half-empty bottle of rat poison. But why would a poisoner throw it out just outside the restaurant?

Suspect identification: An Old Friend for DinnerEdit

Detective: The restaurant was full of people when it happened. Maybe someone saw something suspicious. I need to piece together all the witnesses statements and get an id.

Solution: Harry Hatter

If you fail:

Detective: It seems the clients were too focused on their food, to notice anything else...

If you win:

Detective: Harry Hatter? Don't tell me you finally found a job that suits you. Poisoners have it hard in prison. Nobody trust them.

Harry Hatter: No, please, not the slammer! I... I didn't poison anyone, I swear! I was just paid to leave a bottle of rat poison in the alley, behind the restaurant!

City search: Smell of a RatEdit

Detective: Alright, Hatter. Do you know who employed you?

Harry Hatter: Well... Uhhh... I know where he works! He's supposed to pay me for the job, you know.

Solution: (2,10)

If you fail:

Harry Hatter: Uhmm... I think I'm lost. I guess I didn't remember where he works after all.

Detective: Some things don't change, do they? You're still a lousy criminal. You can't even find the guy who owes you money for the job!

If you win:

Detective: Pleased to meet you, Mike. Late for work?

Mike Lawless: Uhm, yeah. Miguela made me a great breakfast. Since she closed down after the poisoning, she has a lot of time to cook for me!

Detective: So that's why you faked your own poisoning, huh?

Mike Lawless: Oh no! you figured it out! Please, I had to do it! I love my wife's home meals, I love her company. And now she's working her hands off in that restaurant. I barely see her!

Detective: It's the 20th century, Mike! You want your wife to stay in the kitchen?

Mike Lawless: Well, technically, she's still in the kitchen at the restaurant...

Detective: Don't be a wiseguy, Mike. If she wants to fulfill herself profesionally, you better let her. Or she'll find someone else. That lawyer Duffing, with the lovely daughter... he's a widower, right?

Mike Lawless: Please, don't say things like that! I get it, I'm sorry! I'll apologize to Miguela!


If you fail:

Detective: I'm sorry, Miguela. I can't put it together. i think there's something fishy in the air.

Miguela Lawless: Oh yes, there's a salmon cooking in the oven! Would you like some?

Detective: Uhm, maybe I'll find the poisoner first? I know salmon's not exactly a fugu fish, but I'm not taking my chances!

If you win:

Miguela Lawless: Thank you for talking sense into my husband. He was really sorry for what he did. He spent the whole weekend giving away my restaurant's flyers!

Detective: Wow, that's really sweet. I bet he got a nice meal in return.

Miguela Lawless: Are you kidding? I won't forgive hin that easily and he knows that. Besides, he needs to go on a diet. I really spoiled him with my meat-pies!
