"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

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

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)

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. 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.

In the room north of conference, there are $  on the rightmost chair, and a train ticket on the chair left of that one.

In the conference, there's one candy on the desk, and 2 on the right table

In the room southwest of hall, there's 1 paperclip in the grating.

Solution: the blue plans on the desk in the room east of the archive.

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...


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.
