This case stands out as being significantly different depending on the chosen gender of your detective.

With Covet defeated, it's time to face one, last task - probably harder than any I've faced earlier.

"It's time for one, last task. I've planned everything with Leo, time to make the move."


Leonardo McLean: Everything is set, I'm ready to go. You sure you want to do this? There's no going back, you know.

Detective: You said that a thousand times. I'm more worried about you. You and cops don't mix well...

Leonardo McLean: Haha! I'm a professional, lad. I'll handle it. Come on, let's go.


Leonardo McLean: So, the first step is reconnaissance, right?

Detective: Correct. I need to figure out detail about the...

Leonardo McLean: Wait, don't say it! Someone might overhear. Let's use a codename.

Detective: *sigh* Right. I need to figure out the details about the object.

Leonardo McLean: Oooooh, object! I like it. Has a nice ring to it.

Detective: I'll just ask our friends and acquaintances. Somebody surely knows something.

If you fail:

Detective: I've got nothing useful, Leo.

Leonardo McLean: Let's abort, then. We can't proceed with the operation without solid intel.

If you win:

Detective: Great! I've got all the details here.

Leonardo McLean: It's worth how much?! That's a lot of money!

Detective: Yeah, it is. But it's also hard to find. Got any ideas?

Leonardo McLean: Maybe. I think we can find someone who could help.

Suspect identification: Consulting the CousinEdit

Leonardo McLean: During my career, I met many interesting people. Maybe one of my contacts could lend a hand.

Detective: I'm not sure if letting someone on the plan is a good idea, Leo.

Leonardo McLean: It's your call. I'll write down a list, maybe we can figure something out.

Solution: Avi Ritchie

If you fail:

Detective: No way, Leo. I'm not letting in anyone on this.

Leonardo McLean: As you wish. But without help, we won't be able to go ahead.

If you win:

Leonardo McLean: Ah, Avi Ritchie. He was a fence who specialized in liquidating valuables. Jewelry, antiques... You know where I'm heading with this?

Detective: Yeah. He's retired now, but maybe he could give us a favor... give him a call, will you?

City search: Supper at Tiffany'sEdit

Leonardo McLean: Bingo! Just got off the phone with Avi. He confirmed it's really worth the trouble, and also got me the directions to a place where you can find it. A posh deprtment store.

Detective: Then what are you waiting for?

The department store is:

  • not more than 1 from a shop
  • more than 2 from clubs
  • not more than 2 from a hotel
  • more than 2 from pubs
  • more than 1 from press buildings
  • more than 1 from restaurants
  • not 5 from theaters
  • On the map there are 4 shops
  • On the map there are 3 clubs
  • On the map there are 3 hotels

Solution: (6,8)

If you fail:

Detective: Are you sure this is the place?

Leonardo McLean: No. Maybe the directions were wrong. Oh darn it. Let's just try another day.

If you win:

Detective: We're here. This is the department store.

Leonardo McLean: So, are we going in?

Detective: What?! Now?

Leonardo McLean: Yeah, they're closing soon. The building is probably almost empty of customers. This is the best time to do it.

Crime scene search: Closing TimeEdit

Detective: Alright, I'm going in. You wait in the car.

Leonardo McLean: Right, they might know my face. I'll honk twice if there's trouble.

When you enter the jeweler:

Dough Headstein: Welcome to my jewelry shop. If you're interested in one of my wares, just tell me which one.

Detective: Right. I just need a look around.

If you fail:

Detective: I don't think it's in the department store after all. I better get back to Leo.

If you win:

Detective: This is definitely the one. Such a tiny thing, and worth so much!

Detective: ...What was that? Did I hear a car honking outside?

Lucy Gordon: You are under arrest! On the ground, right now!

Detective: Honey, wait! I can explain!

Lucy Gordon: I said, on the ground! Why are you kneeling? On one knee?

Detective: Before you arrest me, I want to ask you something, my dear...

Lucy Gordon: Hold on there! You're proposing to me? You wanted to rob a jewelry store to get me a diamond ring?

Detective: What?! I didn't plan to steal it! It took a lot of effort to find the right ring!

Detective: Leo helped me with picking the one you'd like, and one of his old buddies told us where we can get a ring like that in the city. They don't make them by the dozen, you know.

Detective: I might have been a bit too secretive about this, but... you know... I wanted to surprise you.

Lucy Gordon: Well, you certainly did, my love!

Happily Ever AfterEdit

If you fail:

Detective: I can't do it, Leo. There are too many loose trings. I don't know how to get down to it.

Leonardo McLean: You need to be patient, grasshopper. Gather yourself and let's start again. You need to have it all well thought-out.

If you win:

Lucy Gordon: I'm so sorry, honey! It's that my instincts kicked in when I met you on the street. I knew you were hiding something from me. I just didn't knew it was something this pleasant!

Detective: I should have remembered you are the smartest policewoman in the city.

Detective: That's why I love you. Speaking of which, you've never answered my question...

Lucy Gordon: You've never asked it, I stopped you at the gunpoint...

Lucy Gordon: So let's close the doors and ask me again. You'll love the answer.

Leo is up to something and you want to know why.

"I haven't heard from Leo for a while now, and he's not returning my calls. I need to check up on him."


Detective: It's been a while since my last date with Leo, and he didn't even call once. Maybe I should check up on him?

Detective: Hi there, darling, I'm just calling to see...

Leonardo McLean: This is Leonardo McLean. Unfortunately, I cannot pick up the phone at the moment. Please give me a call later.

Detective: That did it. Why are you avoiding me, Leo? Don't forget your girlfriend is the best detective in the city!


Detective: I'll just ask our friends and acquaintances. Somebody surely knows something.

If you fail:

Detective: Leo just vanished! What happened? Could it be Malone's work?

If you win:

Detective: Hi there, Lucy. I've heard that you might know something about Leo's whereabouts.

Lucy Gordon: I, uh... look, I probably should have told you earlier.

Detective: Tell me what?

Lucy Gordon: I think Leo is back in the business. I don't have any evidence yet, but... he's up to something. I just know it.

Detective: Maybe that's why he's been eluding me lately. Please, stay away from this, Lucy. I'll try to figure out what's happening. If he started stealing again, law will be the least of his problems.

Crime scene search: Once a Thief, Always a ThiefEdit

Detective: Luckily, Leo gave me the key to his apartment. I need to comb it for clues that will tell me where he is now.

When you find hidden room behind boilers:

Detective: A hidden room! This is probably where Leo planned all his robberies!

If you fail:

Detective: There's nothing suspicious here. Well, at least nothing indicating Leo is planning something at the moment.

If you win:

Detective: A note. "6 PM, Jefferson Square Cinema."

Detective: Leo is going out with someone on a... movie date? And the flick starts in five minutes. I need to get going!

Suspect identification: Partners in CrimeEdit

Detective: I need to identifty the person meeting with Leo. The movie already started, and it's pretty dark in the auditorium.

Screenshot 2014-08-05-13-32-13

Solution: Avi Ritchie

If you fail:

Detective: I don't think he was meeting someone in the cinema. I bet he just wrote down the time and the place so he wouldn't forget about the screening.

If you win:

Detective: Lucy, could you check a name for me? Avi Ritchie.

Lucy Gordon: Oh, I heard about him. He's a robber and a fence. He specializes in liquidating art and jewelry.

Detective: But that means... wait, they're leaving the cinema! I need to tail them.

City search: Not All That Glitters is GoldEdit

Detective: Leo and Avi left the cinema and drove off in a carpet cleaner's truck. Talk about suspicious! I need to find them.

Leo and Avi are:

  • not more than 1 from a shop
  • not more than 2 from a club
  • not more than 2 from a hotel
  • more than 2 from hot dog stand
  • not on railways

Solution: (2,8)

If you fail:

Detective: I've lost them. But I don't hear sirens or gunshots, so maybe, just maybe, I was wrong all along.

If you win:

Detective: Avi is waiting in the truck, in front of the department store. There's a jeweler's shop inside. I need to step in!

Detective: Leonardo McLean! Come out with your hands above you head!

Leonardo McLean: Honey? What are you doing here?

Detective: Don't you honey me, you crook! On the ground, now!

Detective: I said, on the ground! Why are you kneeling? On one knee?

Leonardo McLean: I wanted to ask you something, dear.

Detective: Hold on there! You're proposing to me? With a ring you just stole?

Leonardo McLean: What?! I didn't steal it! I was working day and night as a security consultant to get you this ring!

Detective: Then why the whole planning? Why Avi? Why the suspicious truck?

Leonardo McLean: Avi's the best expert on diamond rings in the city. But he's clean, like me. He owns a carpet cleaning truck.

Leonardo McLean: I might have been too secretive above this, but... you know... I wanted to surprise you.

Detective: I've never been so surprised in my whole life, my love.

Happily Ever After Edit

If you fail:

Detective: I suppose I'm just a bit over-attached I need to give Leo some breathing space.

Detective: And if Leo ever breaks my trust, I know at least half a dozen ways to dispose of the body.

If you win:

Leonardo McLean: I'm sorry, honey. My, uhm... job experience took the better of me.

Detective: No, it was my fault. I acted too much like a hard-boiled detective.

Leonardo McLean: You are a hard-boiled detective, darling. That's why I love you.

Leonardo McLean: Speaking of which, you've never answered my question...

Detective: You've never asked it... So let's close the doors and ask me again. You'll love the answer.
