A shady murder becomes your priority when you find out the victim is somebody you knew.

"McLean's friend Mickey was murdered. Being a well-known crook, McLean couldn't approach the crime scene. But I could."


Leonardo McLean: You've got to help me, lad! Mickey's dead!

Detective: What! How?

Leonardo McLean: I dunno. Word on the street is the uniforms found him stiff in an alley. I'd check it out, but the place is swarming with cops!

Detective: Right. I'll try to find out what happened. Keep a low profile, ok? I don't want to join him.

Leonardo McLean: I don't know how to tell you this, but...Mickey is dead.

Detective: Mickey? Oh no! Were you there? Did they hurt you too?

Leonardo McLean: No, I'm OK. Word on the street is the uniforms found him stiff in an alley. I'd check it out, but the place is swarming with cops!

Detective: Right. I'll try to find out what happened. Keep a low profile, ok? I'm scared that something will happen to you, too.


Detective: The place sure is swarming with cops... and onlookers. Maybe I'll be able get some information from them.

If you fail:

Detective: The cops have the whole place secured tight, and nobody wants to talk. That's a dead end for me.

If you win:

Detective: Excuse me... Don, is it? You're Mickey's friend?

Donald Decker: How do you know? If you're a cop, I swear...

Detective: I'm not a cop. Sorry, should've told you. I'm McLean's friend. And I knew Mickey. Do you know anything about what happened here?

Donald Decker: Well hello there, pretty. You shouldn't be around here. Let me take you somewhere nice...

Detective: Cut the dating talk, this is serious. I'm McLean's friend. Do you know anything about what happened here?

Donald Decker: Sorry. I can't talk about it. You know how it is. Folks here won't talk either. It's... private business.

Detective: The crooks follow a strict code of silence. This could mean only one thing: Mickey's death was gang related.

Crime scene search: The WeaponEdit

Detective: I have to find the murder weapon. But to do that, I need access to the crime scene.

Lucy Gordon: Oh. What are you doing here? I'd love to talk with you, but I'm in the middle of an investigation!

Lucy Gordon: Oh. What are you doing here? I'm in the middle of an investigation, I can't spare any time for you.

Detective: I know. I'm here to find the killer, just like you are. And I also know nobody wants to talk to you because it was a gang-related death. But if you just let me through...

Lucy Gordon: All right. Take a look. But be quick about it. I don't want any of my colleagues to see you.

If you fail:

Detective: This is no use. I need to leave the crime scene before one of the cops shows up.

If you win:

Detective: A .45 revolver. Recently fired. The gunshot residue on the barrel suggests a point-blank range. No fingerprints - the killer probably used gloves. And I'll bet the gun was stolen.

Detective: I need to confront Leo. Maybe he'll tell me more after he finds out it was a gang hit.

City search: The MotiveEdit

Detective: Leo, you need to be frank with me. I found the gun used to kill Mickey. I know he was murdered by some other crook. Someone he knew. And I think you know why.

Leonardo McLean: You want me to end up dead just like Mickey? *sigh* Mickey was in the middle of some major operation. Something to do with expensive marzipan straight from Europe.

Leonardo McLean: I heard he had some hideout in a warehouse or industrial building of sorts. And I guess he also had a partner, because it's hard to pull a job like that on your own. That's all I know.

Detective: I'll need to find that hideout, Leo, that's the only lead we have right now.

Mickey's hideout is:

  • not more than 1 from a museum
  • not more than 1 from a club
  • more than 1 from railways
  • more than 2 from a theater
  • more than 1 from parks
  • On the map there are 4 museums
  • On the map there are 3 clubs
  • On the map there are 2 theaters

There are candies in (4,1)

Solution: (3,8)

If you fail:

Detective: I can't find Mickey's hideout without some proper directions. What to do now?

If you win:

Detective: Mickey had a wall safe here. It's open, and all the cash is missing. I guess I have the motive - money. And either the killer was a safecracker, or he knew the combination to the lock.

Suspect identification: The KillerEdit

Detective: Don't you see it, Leo? Mickey died because his partner in crime wanted all the money from the marzipan deal.

Leonardo McLean: I know what are you going to say. That's how crooks end up: betrayed by their own. But Mickey and I were old-school, we played by the rules. Mickey didn't deserve to die.

Detective: Then forget about this hypocritical code of silence and help me find this killer. You're the only one able to identify Mickey's associates. We'll see who got rich lately.

Solution: Donald Decker

If you fail:

Detective: It looks like Mickey's killer was able to foresee this turn of events. We won't be able to find him now.

If you win:

Leonardo McLean: I'll be... That's Don! But... Mickey and Don were best buddies!

Detective: Until Don decided that he doesn't want to split the cash with anyone. Even his best "buddy". The question is, what should we do about it.

Leonardo McLean: According to the code, there's only one price he can pay. With his own blood.

Leonardo McLean: *sigh* But I'm not that kind of crook. I don't believe in bloodshed. If I back down from this, will you... handle this the right way?

Detective: You bet. But keep clear out of that candy business. I don't want you to end up like Mickey.

Leonardo McLean: *sigh* But I don't believe in bloodshed and I know you will think higher of me. If I back down from this, will you... handle this the right way?

Detective: Of course I will. But keep clear out of that candy business. You're too dear to me to end up like Mickey.


If you fail:

Detective: Sorry, Leo. I don't have enough leads to find the killer.

Leonardo McLean: I knew it would end like this. It always does. The code, you know? It's all because of the darn code...

If you win:

Detective: Here's my statement, Lucy. I found the killer for you. If you hurry, you'll find the cash he stole from the recently departed Mickey.

Lucy Gordon: Oh gosh. Someone from the underworld cooperated with you? Who? I need to know the name!

Detective: I can't tell you, Lucy. It wouldn't be fair to my guy. He's a reliable informant.

Lucy Gordon: I still have a problem with determining your loyalties, you know? I'll let it go... this time. But I'm watching you closely from now on.

Detective: Watching me closely? Wow, what a way to get this girl's attention...

Detective: Hold your horses, Lucy. You have there everything here to make an arrest. I need to protect my guy.

Lucy Gordon: What, some crook stole your heart? Covering for a criminal is not your style, detective. I'll let it go, but I'm watching you closely from now on.

Detective: Stole my heart? What a nerve.
