With the help of an old enemy, you need to bring down your newest and toughest foe.

"Ms. de Monde wants to play my mentor. If that helps me unravel Covet's financial schemes, then so be it."


Patience de Monde: Bravo! It seems you finally figured out who's behind it all, detective.

Detective: Not thanks to you, Ms. de Monde. What do you want?

Patience de Monde: I am your number one fan! And I'd like Covet gone just as you. But I'm not a... front line person, if you know what I mean.

Detective: You want your dirty work done for you.

Patience de Monde: Watch the attitude, lad. Only I know how to hit Covet where it hurts the most.

Patience de Monde: I want to help you, stubborn girl. I'd like Covet gone just as you. But I'm not a... front line person, if you know what I mean.

Detective: You want your dirty work done for you.

Patience de Monde: Watch the attitude, girl. Only I know how to hit Covet where it hurts the most.

Detective: And that is?

Patience de Monde: Money. When in doubt, always follow the money!


Detective: I think I get it. Every political leader needs stable funding, and that's Covet's weak spot.

Patience de Monde: Precisely. Remember the First City Bank Heist? The vault was full of Covet's dirty money. If you hadn't retrieved the loot, I might've stopped Covet there and then.

Detective: Yeah, now I'm the bad guy. I'll figure out how to get to Covet's money, don't you worry.

If you fail:

Detective: Covet's money is clean as a whistle, Ms. de Monde. I've got nothing to use against him.

Patience de Monde: Then this conversation can serve no purpose anymore. Goodbye.

Detective: I think I have a sweet lead. A lot of Covet's campaign money came through anonymous donations, but all of them were made from a single bank.

Patience de Monde: You've done good enough. I'm almost impressed. Now would you kindly get to work?

City search: Too Small to FailEdit

Patience de Monde: Covet isn't a fool. I bet he channels all is dirty money from outside the city.

Detective: Great. So now I'm here, looking for a cow that writes checks. I'll call you if I find something.

Covet's money is:

  • more than 1 from water
  • more than 2 from factories
  • more than 1 from fast foods
  • more than 2 from hotels
  • more than 1 from restaurants
  • more than 1 from warehouses
  • more than 2 from pubs
  • more than 1 from farms
  • more than 1 from campsites
  • more than 1 from landmarks
  • On the map there are 2 factories
  • On the map there are 2 fast foods
  • On the map there are 2 warehouses
  • On the map there are 2 farms
  • On the map there are 4 campsites
  • On the map there are 2 landmarks

Solution: (11,4)

If you fail:

Detective: A lot of blood suckers out here, but all are mosquitoes, not bankers.

If you win:

Detective: I've got it. It's some kind of an agricultural bank. No one would look for Covet's money in here.

Suspect identification: Taken to the CleanersEdit

Patience de Monde: Covet probably has someone in that bank working for him. Just find that person, it shouldn't be hard.

Detective: I don't think people like that advertise in the classified section, Ms. de Monde...

Candy campaign suspect identification solution

Solution: Mark Flanagan

If you fail:

Detective: I've checked all of the bank employees and they're clean. No one has any connections with Covet.

Detective: Don't tell me we found the only bank in the world with honest bankers...

If you win:

Detective: OK, they do advertise in the ads. Sort of. In the "missing persons" section. One of the bank employees disappeared after the elections.

Patience de Monde: Don't bother finding him. I bet Covet made sure no one will find that lad.

Detective: So our key witness is dead? We'll never get Covet now!

Patience de Monde: I find your lack of faith disturbing. There must be a trail. Look closer!

Detective: I have just one clue. A few days before he disappeared, the banker visited this address...

Crime scene search: It All Adds UpEdit

Patience de Monde: I know the address. Covet's country residence. Only his closest associates know about this place.

Detective: And you know... how, exactly?

Patience de Monde: He invited me once for some fava beans and a nice Chianti. But I digress.

Patience de Monde: Covet is a very organised person. He... fired Flanagan, so he probably runs the books by himself.

Detective: I see. You suspect his ledger is somewhere inside this residence. I'll find it.

If you fail:

Detective: This is a dead end. Maybe Covet doesn't have a ledger, but a... mind palace, or something.

If you win:

Detective: I've got his ledger! Let me see... structuring through shell companies... round-tripping from foreign direct investments... trade-based laundering with overvalued invoices...

Patience de Monde: The real question is: was this all legal?

Detective: Absolutely not!


If you fail:

Detective: This is no use, Ms. de Monde. Covet built a financial empire that's impossible to crack. I tried, but...

Patience de Monde: You have failed me for the last time! Just do what I tell you. There is no "try".

If you win:

Patience de Monde: So there, you have it. Solid proof that Covet's campaign was financed from illegal means.

Detective: Yes. If this goes public, Covets[sic] assets will be seized. And what do you get out of this, Ms. de Monde?

Patience de Monde: Oh, who said anything about a quid pro quo. I'm doing this out of pure goodness, detective. Just like Covet did with his prohibition.
