The sugar ban lead to an increase of mob violence, and Perry Jameson wants to cover that topic in the Daily News.

"Jameson got wind that someone will try to steal a big shipment of candy. I need to catch the mobsters red handed!"


Perry J. Jameson: I've got something big. Something that will prove how harmful Covet's policy is.

Perry J. Jameson: There's a big, government shipment of candy leaving the city today. My informants told me, that someone will try to steal it.

Detective: I get it. You want me to catch the crooks red handed. Covet gets blamed for letting the mob out of control, and Daily News gets the coverage.

Perry J. Jameson: Smart lad! So, what are you waiting for? This arrest is going to be a sensation!

Perry J. Jameson: Smart girl! So, what are you waiting for? This arrest is going to be a sensation!


Detective: First, I need to verify Perry's info and gather some intel on the shipment.

  • 3 fingerprints
  • 2 photos
  • Thief: 3 knuckles
  • 3 fingerprints
  • 4 photos
  • 4 maps
  • 3 fingerprints
  • 2 photos

If you fail:

Detective: I'm not sure if Perry's information is true. Surely someone would know about an operation this big!

If you win:

Leonardo McLean: Stay away from this case, gumshoe, don't bite off more sugar than you can chew!

Detective: That's the lamest threat I've ever heard, Leo. What do you know?

Leonardo McLean: This heist is going to get ugly. You'll have a hostage situation on your hands. Stay away while you still can.

Leonardo McLean: Stay away from this case, sweet. I'd have to stop you and that would break my heart.

Detective: I'm unstoppable and you know it, Leo. What do you know?

Leonardo McLean: Stay away while you still can. This heist is going to get ugly, and you'll have a hostage situation on your hands.

Detective: He hung up! What did he mean by "hostage situation"? Is he working with the mob again?

City search: Full Speed Ahead!Edit

Detective: Why did Leo mention hostages? Maybe that's got something to do with getting the shipment out of the city?

The shipment is:

  • not more than 2 from a port
  • more than 2 from museums
  • more than 2 from restaurants
  • more than 2 from casino
  • more than 3 from hospitals
  • more than 1 from ports
  • not more than 10 from a police station
  • On the map there are 3 museums
  • On the map there are 3 restaurants
  • On the map there are 2 hospitals

Solution: (8,5)

If you fail:

Detective: I don't get it. The shipment is nowhere around. Did I get here too late?

If you win:

Detective: Oh, darn, the candy is on a cruise ship! Quick, I need a boat!

Crime scene search: Below the DeckEdit

Detective: Whew! I managed to get on board just in time. And now I understand why Leo mentioned hostages! The ship is full of people. If the gang attacks, there's going to be blood!

Detective: Luckily, I still have time. If I manage to get the candy overboard, maybe the gang with think again before attacking the ship.

If you enter hold:

Detective: Those crates are full of candy. I'll never be able to throw it off the ship... unless I find something to help me.

If you enter the outside, west of control:

Detective: The crane control room. With the crane, I'll be able to move the crates full of candy overboard in no time!

If you fail:

Detective: Ugh, I can't figure out how to throw all that candy overboard. And the mobsters will be here any minute!

If you win:

Detective: Let's see, how does this work? A-ha, I think I got it. It's a pity to throw so much candy in the water, but it seems I have no choice!

Suspect identification: StowawaysEdit

Detective: The candy is gone. Now I just have to convince the mobsters to forfeit their plan. They're probably hiding among normal passengers of the ship.

Solution: Tony Malone

If you fail:

Detective: That's not one of the mobsters. Maybe they already went to capture the bridge? I need to get off this ship, fast!

If you win:

Detective: Mr. Malone? I'm pleased to inform you that the candy you wanted to snatch is gone.

Tony Malone: Is this some kind of a jest? Would how kindly tell me where the shipment is before I get uncivil? We are quite heavily armed, I assure you.

Detective: Oh, a few milas astern and fifty fathoms deep. If you really want to get it, I suppose you could try to use one of the life boats...

Tony Malone: I'll say this once: not many men had the courage to slight me, and none of them lived to tell the tale.

Detective: I like being one of a kind, Mr. Malone. Don't you have a boat to catch?

Detective: It's good that I'm not a man, then. Don't you have a boat to catch?


If you fail:

Perry J. Jameson: It seems you missed your opportunity. The gang captured the shipment, some people got hurt in the process. It's a pity I didn't have a reporter on the site.

Detective: I'm sorry for all those people. If only I could do more to stop the mobsters!

Perry J. Jameson: Don't be so hard on yourself. It's Covet's fault, not yours.

If you win:

Perry J. Jameson: So where's my story, kid? The only news I heard was that the candy ended up in the bay. The prohibitionist movement is dancing with joy!

Detective: That was the only way of stopping the mobsters, Perry. I had to throw the candy overboard.

Perry J. Jameson: You what?! How am I going to blame Covet now? The newspaper has already been written!

Detective: So you knew the details of the heist all along? You were risking the life of those passengers just to get your story and blame Covet for his policy?

Perry J. Jameson: You seem so surprised! And I thought you knew how this world works. To be a politician, you need to make sacrifices.

Detective: Out of other peoples lives? No, Perry. This is where we part ways. Just send the check to my office.
