An information leak in the town hall needs to be plugged before the news get to the press.

"A spy rummaged through Covet's personal notes and the mayor fears his newest sugar-ban bill might leak to the press. That's why he called me for help."


Alphonse Covet: Detective, I require your utmost assistance. There was a break-in at the city hall at night and I need someone...discreet to settle the matter.

Detective: Discreetness is my profession, mayor. What was stolen?

Alphonse Covet: Nothing physical. It's a case of espionage. Witnesses reported seeing a camera flash from inside the building. There was only one, possible target for a spy in that part of the city hall.

Alphonse Covet: My office. And inside, the draft of my newest sugar ban bill. I bet someone want's to sell it to the press... or worse.

Detective: This sounds serious. I'll do everything to retrieve the copy of the manuscript.


Detective: I need to check out the security at the city hall and interview the eyewitnesses.

  • 2 fingerprints
  • 2 maps
  • 3 photos
  • 2 fingerprints
  • 2 maps
  • 2 photos

If you fail:

Detective: Darn it. Nobody saw anything useful, apart from the camera flash, and somehow the spy slipped past security. I don't have any leads.

If you win:

Detective: Oh, no. I think I know how the espionage was done. It was an inside job! The security at the city hall is so strict, only a person with access to the offices could do it.

Suspect identification: City Hall TreacheryEdit

Detective: I need to fish out the spy from amongst all the people who could've had access to the city hall.

Solution: Nicole Pravinsky

If you fail:

Detective: I was sure that was the person!

Alphonse Covet: Detective, I cannot let you slander my employees with unbacked accusations. Your services would be no longer necessary.

If you win:

Detective: Who do we have here... Nicole Pravinsky, an intern. Hired not long ago, previous occupation... Daily News. That's Perry J. Jameson's newspaper!

City search: The Highest VidderEdit

Detective: Pola, Do you know someone from the daily news called Nicole Pravinsky?

Pola Chapelle: Maybe I did, maybe I didn't. Trying to ditch me for another reporter?.

Detective: No, Pola, it's for a case. She's a suspect. She might've...overstepped with her methods of getting sensational material.

Pola Chapelle: Splendid. I'll tell you where to find Mr. Jameson. You can sort it out with him. But you'll give me something in return...

Detective: What? You can't write an article about a case against your own boss!

Pola Chapelle: Oh, I believe you'll manage to find something interesting that'll help my career. Now, about Mr. Jameson...

Mr. Jameson is

  • exactly 3 from a port
  • in the distance of 1 from water
  • more than 1 from churches
  • more than 2 from post offices
  • more than 1 from schools
  • not more than 6 from a theater
  • On the map there are 2 ports.
  • On the map there are 2 churches.

Solution: (5,5)

If you fail:

Detective: I can't find Perry J. Jameson. He's probably surrounded by a bunch of assistants and bodyguards anyway.

If you win:

Detective: A golf course. Perfect.

Detective: Can I have a word with you, Perry? Do you recall an intern, named Nicole Pravinsky? She was working for you not long ago.

Perry J. Jameson: I run a newspaper, boy/girl. I've got dozens of people come and go every week. Why are you looking for this Pravinsky, anyway?

Detective: There was a break-in at the city hall. Mayor Covet is afraid that someone might've copied the text of his newest bill.

Perry J. Jameson: Sorry to disappoint the mayor, but that bill is old news! I already have a copy on my desk, waiting to be used... when the time is right. Are you sure the crook was after the draft, and not plain old cash?

Crime scene search: Photogenic EvidenceEdit

Detective: Perry is right. I need to double-check the facts. The witnesses saw a camera flash, so I'm sure Nicole tried to copy something. But what? I need to find out.

If you fail:

Detective: I'm at a loss here. Maybe Perry was wrong and the spy was really after the bill all along.

If you win:

Detective: The city sewer plans. I bet that if I check it for prints, I'll get a solid proof Nicole was interested in them. I should call the mayor.

Alphonse Covet: Did you catch the crook? Retrieve the photos of the bill?

Detective: The crook is still at large, but I think your bill is safe. The spy wasn't after it at all. She wanted to copy the sewer plans of the city.

Alphonse Covet: Really? That's bizarre. But I'm happy my draft is safe. I'll just give the case to the police, then. But don't worry, I'll give you the reward.

Detective: I'm not worried about the reward. I'm worried about how the thieves can use the sewer blueprints to their own ends...


If you fail:

Alphonse Covet[1]: I'm sorry, mayor. The thief is gone and I can only assume the copy of the bill is gone as well.

Detective: That's bad, really bad. I'm disappointed in you, detective. Now I'll have to depend on my contacts in the media to stop the bill from reaching the press.

If you win:

Pola Chapelle: I hope you solved the case successfully, because I still need something for my big article.

Detective: Oh, I've got something for you, all right. Someone broke into the city hall and copied the plans of the sewer network.

Pola Chapelle: So how are they planning to use them? That sounds like a big operation.

Detective: I don't know... yet. But I suspect there's someone smart behind the whole thing. Not your ordinary street thug.

Pola Chapelle: A criminal Mastermind! I like it. Keep me in the loop, and I promise you'll end up on the front page.
