When knowledge is power, espionage is just another way to win the political game.

"Jameson suspects an information leak and wants to know how someone accessed his secret files."


Detective: I never expected you to visit me personally, Perry. What happened?

Perry J. Jameson: I'll tell you in a second. Is your office secure? Did you check it for bugs?

Detective: You're talking pest control or electronic surveillance?

Perry J. Jameson: Surveillance, of curse! Remember that scientist, Eisenberg? Only a couple people know where he's working right now.

Perry J. Jameson: And yet, someone managed to find Eisenberg and shadow him for a few days. Luckily the scientist told me everything about it and I provided him with protection.

Detective: That's reasonable, but it probably scared away the spook. But maybe it's not over yet. Give me the list of people who knew about Eisenberg's location.


Detective: I need to investigate the people on Jameson's list. Maybe that'll tell me who the spy is.

  • 3 photos
  • Thief: 5 lockpicks
  • 2 fingerprints
  • 3 maps
  • 3 fingerprints
  • 3 maps

If you fail:

Detective: Perry hires a lot of people, and every one of them could do it. It's a dead end.

If you win:

Detective: Something's not right. The leak clearly suggests that someone had access to Jameson's campaign office, but I've double-checked the employees and they're clean!

Detective: Maybe it was an outside job?

Crime scene search: Outside JobEdit

Detective: Perry's campaign office. I need to check it out for clues.

If you enter the secret room

Detective: A secret room for surveillance purposes. Wow, this spy really knows their job.

Solution: (8,10)

If you fail:

Detective: I lost him! And he probably already delivered the reel to his employer.  *sigh* What were you thinking, Leo?

If you win:

Detective: Just like I thought, Leo is heading for the mayor's office. I need to stop him, now.

Leonardo McLean: What are you doing here? Look, I'm in a hurry, I've got a meeting...

Detective: With the mayor, I know. How much Covet pays you to do his dirty job, huh?

Leonardo McLean: Said the pot to the kettle! Look, you don't understand. I need this...

Detective: Spare me the talk. Give me the reel and keep your nose out of the elections. Are we clear?

Leonardo McLean: We're clear. But you're making a big, big mistake, lad.

Leonardo McLean: What are you doing here, darling? Look, I'm in a hurry, I've got a meeting, but we could go on a date afterward.

Detective: You already have a date - with the mayor, am I right? How much Covet pays you to do his dirty job, huh?

Leonardo McLean: Said the pot to the kettle! Look, darling, I can explain. I need this...

Detective: Spare me the talk. Give me the reel and keep your nose out of the elections. Are we clear?

Leonardo McLean: We're clear. But you're making a big, big mistake, lass.


If you fail:

Detective: I can't track down the spy's employer, Perry. I'm out of leads.

Perry J. Jameson: Not on the phone! I'm sure they're listening on our conversation. You hear that, darn spies? We know you're out there!

Perry J. Jameson: You won this time, but I'll track you down, or my name isn't Perry Jedediah Jameson!

If you win:

Detective: I intercepted this reel, Perry. A... freelancer was spying on you, on Covet's orders.

Perry J. Jameson: Now you see what I'm going against. Covet believes he's some kind of savior who protects people from candy and the problems that come with it.

Perry J. Jameson: But is he really? We have proof that his sugar ban is based on a false premise. And Covet is so blinded, he's willing to secure his reelection with unethical means.

Detective: I don't care much about Covet. It's Leo's involvement in this whole thing that's worrying me now. I can't believe he did this... for what, money?
