"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: 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.

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
City search: The Highest VidderEdit
Pola Chapelle: Maybe I did, maybe I didn't. Trying to ditch me for another reporter?.
Detective: What? You can't write an article about a case against your own boss!
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.
Detective: A golf course. Perfect.
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
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.
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.
