A desperate case requires desperate measures, and taking on the guise of your enemy is one of them.

"I decided to infiltrate the gang with McLean's help, and find out what their next move was."


Detective: I'm getting impatient, Leo. Did you contact the mastermind?

Leonardo McLean: Well, I left part of my private money in a cache in the back alley, as the "loot" from the garage job. I've watched the alley for hours, crawling with cats and other critters.

Leonardo McLean: There was no one in sight! But when I went to take back my cash, it was all gone. That mastermind is a professional, I can tell you that.

Detective: You need to think of something, Leo. It's your neck on the line, you know.

Leonardo McLean: We can find a small fish and work your way up, until we get to the big boss.


Detective: All right. We need to ask around, discreetly, and find one of the gang members. They don't seem as smart as their leader.

Leonardo McLean: I'm on it.

If you fail:

Detective: It's useless, Leo. I think they got wind that you're working for me.

Leonardo McLean: Great! Now I'll have the opinion of a stool pigeon!

If you win:

Leonardo McLean: I think I know how to contact them. They're looking for a job opportunity before their next, big heist. They need the money to buy the equipment.

Detective: So, we need to throw them a bone? Some house you can burglarize so they'll trust you?

Leonardo McLean: I know how it sounds, but I don't know any other ideas. Sorry.

Leonardo McLean: I don't want you to be a part of this, but I don't know any other ideas. Sorry.

Suspect identification: Rotten to the CoreEdit

Detective: If I need to throw the gang a bone, it should be a rotten one. I need to find one of the bad guys from Judge Harshfield's list.

Solution: Vanessa Grande

If you fail:

Detective: Darn it. I can't just send out a gang to rob someone's house at random!

If you win:

Detective: Vanessa Grande. A young, rich widow suspected of killing her three consecutive husbands for inheritance and insurance money. Looks like we've got a nice target for the gang.

Leonardo McLean: Darn, and I thought your girlfriend was cold.

Leonardo McLean: Darn, and I thought you were cold.

Detective: You know what's also cold? prison bars, for example.

City search: Playing Robin HoodEdit

Detective: I need to find Vanessa's mansion and mark it for the crooks. It should be somewhere in this part of the city.

Vanessa's mansion is:

  • exactly 2 from a café
  • not more than 2 from a landmark
  • more than 2 from a golf course
  • more than 2 from a port
  • not more than 6 from an office
  • On the map there are 2 cafés
  • On the map there are 3 landmarks

Solution: (4,6)

If you fail:

Detective: This is no use. Without knowing exactly where Vanessa lives, the gang might rob someone innocent.

If you win:

Detective: Here's the target house, Leo.

Leonardo McLean: Great! I'll give the intel to the gang. I hope they'll invite me to their hideout.

Crime scene search: Now or NeverEdit

Leonardo McLean: We need to hurry! The gang is robbing Vanessa's place as we speak. And I know their hideout - it's at a rail yard near South Station.

Detective: All right, meet me there. I hope we'll find anything before they come back.

If you enter the room south of workshop:

Detective: I think I hear someone at the back of the building.

If you enter the next room:

Leonardo McLean: What? Oh no, what are you doing here?

Lucy Gordon: Leonardo McLean, you're arrested for stealing the Honeysuckles and for other assorted crimes. You have the right to remain silent. Everything you say mught be used against you...

Leonardo McLean: Yeah, yeah, I got it. Just cuff me, officer.

If you enter the workshop:

Detective: Darn it! Leo was arrested by Lucy! Luckily, she took him to her squad car through the back door. I still have some time to search the room...

Detective: Hmmm, this safe looks promising, but it's locked. Maybe I can find something to open it.

Impertinent infiltration solution and cash

If you fail:

Detective: Ugh, this is useless! I won't be able to solve the case now.

If you win:

Detective: What's this? The blueprints for the First City Bank? This is very, very bad!

Finale Edit

If you fail:

Detective: Great, just great. My cooperation with McLean was a flop. I've got no ideas what to do next. And I don't think Lucy will work with me, either.

If you win:

Detective: Great, McLean is in jail, partly because of me. It was I who gave him the Honeysuckles, after all.

Detective: Great,Leo is in jail. I could say I knew this day would come, but the fact is, it was also my fault.

Detective: To make matters worse, I know that the gang is planning to rob the First City Bank. But I don't even know how the gang members look like or when are they planning to do it.

Detective: I need someone in the inside to keep me in the loop, but Lucy has just arrested McLean! I'm back to square one.
