A barber's wife left him and took more than his heart.

"Mario Delgadillo summoned me after a bad row with his wife, Flora. Instead of saving his love, he wanted to save a briefcase his wife took by accident."


Mario Delgadillo: Mamma mia! I was waiting for you all this time, signore!

Mario Delgadillo: Mamma mia! I was waiting for you all this time, bella!

Detective: What's the problem, sir?

Mario Delgadillo: Mia amore! My wife left me, again, I'm afraid! She's on her way to her mother right now!

Detective: Do you want me to talk her out of it?

Mario Delgadillo: No, no. E 'impossibile. A man's advice to return will only enrage her. I can only hope she will come back, eventually!

Mario Delgadillo: Maybe if she heard another woman's advice... But no, no. E 'impossibile. I must be the one to win back her cuore!

Mario Delgadillo: But, before she left, there was an... incidente. She took my briefcase without checking what is inside.

Detective: And there is something very precious inside that you want to retrieve?

Mario Delgadillo: Si! I cannot open my barber shop without it! But do not look inside, per favore. It's a very delicate matter!

Detective: Agreed. I'll get to it.


Detective: I won't be able to find where Mrs. Delgadillo is, without gathering information about her. I better get started.

  • 3 fingerprints
  • 2 maps
  • 3 photos
  • 5 questions
  • 2 maps

If you fail:

Detective: I have no clue where to look for Mrs. Delgadillo. Her husband will be disappointed.

If you win:

Detective: Flora's Italian mother lives in a small town, and she doesn't own a car. If I manage to get an ID from Delgadillo, maybe I'll be able to find her before she boards a train, bus, or ship.

Suspect identification: A New HaircutEdit

Detective: Let's get started. How does you[sic] wife look like?

Mario Delgadillo: Well, she is... pretty.

Detective: Please, be more specific. Is she tall? Blonde? Long haired?

Mario Delgadillo: Dannazione! I was so concerned about my work that I didn't notice how she looks like right now.

Mario Delgadillo: And she was always changing her hair, her make-up... you know how it is with women, right?

Detective: Mario, Mario. You sure don't know how to treat a woman, do you?

Mario Delgadillo: Don't give me the talk, just think of something, please! I need that briefcase!

Detective: Sigh. Ok, I'll ask around your barber shop. Maybe someone was more observant than you.

Detective: That's sweet, but you need to be more specific.

Mario Delgadillo: Ah, detective, I don't know how to tell you this... [[|Flora Delgadillo|my wife]], she was always changing her appearance!

Mario Delgadillo: Long hair, blonde hair, short hair, red hair! Sure you understand that? I was too busy with my work to notice!

Detective: This explains why she left for her mother, then.

Mario Delgadillo: Proprio cosi! I was a fool. But I need your help right now! Per favore, think of something!

Detective: Maybe some of your male clients were more interested in your wife's looks, don't you think? Let's ask.

If you fail:

Detective: Luckily for Mario, none of the clients were interested in Mrs. Delgadillo's looks. Sadly for me, i'm stuck without that information.

If you win:

Detective: Great, I know how she looks like. Now lets put this knowledge to good use!

City searchEdit

Detective: I need to ask around and figure out which mode of transportation Mrs. Delgadillo decided to take.

The location of Mrs. Delgadillo is:

  • not more than 1 from a bus station
  • not more than 1 from a train station
  • more than 2 from gas stations
  • somewhere on railways

Solution: (5,6)

If you fail:

Detective: I can't waste anymore time looking for Mrs. Delgadillo. There must be a better way to find her.

If you win:

Detective: Ah, the Westbound Express on platform 4. Let's check it out.

Crime scene search: All Aboard!Edit

Detective: A Pullman's porter was able to identify Mrs. Delgadillo. This should be the carriage, but I need to find the right compartment.

If you fail:

Detective: Oh no, that was the signal for the departure! I need to get off this train, fast!

If you win:

Detective: Bingo! The briefcase is here, and I can take it before Mrs. Delgadillo gets back. She's in for a surprise. Oh well, I'll better get off before the train leaves the station.


If you fail:

Detective: I'm sorry, Mario. I don't have your briefcase.

Mario Delgadillo: Mamma mia! It's a tragedy! I won't be able to open my barber shop! Oh, what shall I do?

Detective: Maybe you should try to talk with your wife.

Mario Delgadillo: Non è facile. I don't even know what I did wrong!

Detective: You have a lot of things to think about right now. I'll leave you to it.

Detective: I have a few ideas, but you better figure it out for yourself. I'll leave you to it.

If you win:

Mario Delgadillo: Bravo, detective! I wouldn't be the same man without you?

Detective: I... I can see that. How are things with your wife going?

Mario Delgadillo: I gave it some consideration and I think I know how to win her back. And with your help, I can open the barber shop again.

Mario Delgadillo: You have my eternal gratitude! Hey, I could give you a nice haircut, or a nice, clean shave. Just drop by anytime!

Mario Delgadillo: Ah, detective! Thanks to you I am whole again!

Detective: Are you sure your wife took the briefcase by accident? It seems you share your wife's interest in good looks, Mario.

Mario Delgadillo: Bella, you are right as usual. It was a valuable lesson for me. I should pay more attention to mia amore, and less to myself.

Mario Delgadillo:You have my eternal gratitude! I'm also a stylist, you know. I can do wonders with your hair and make-up, bella. Just drop by anytime!


If playing as a male detective, Leonardo McLean can't be used as the underworld contact in this case.
