Your friend needs to leave the city and you have to deliver justice in her name.

"I've never seen Lucy Gordon so unhappy. She had been forced to go on vacation and needed my help to find a wanted felon. How could I refuse?"


Detective: Wow, Lucy, you definitely look better without the uniform! Ugh, I mean, you look great in that dress. What's the occasion? Are you... going out somewhere?

Lucy Gordon: Almost. My boss ordered me to go on a vacation. With all those things happening, I guess I need some time off. But don't worry, I arranged a date for you.

Detective: A date? With whom?

Lucy Gordon: Francesco Battaglia, a hitman for one of the crime families. The DA has a solid case against him, but he's on the loose. You need to catch him in my stead.

Detective: Wow, look at that dress! You really took my advice seriously! So, you're going on vacation after all.

Lucy Gordon: My boss made me do it. With all those things happening, I need some time off. But don't worry, I arranged a date for you.

Detective: This isn't some joke about McLean, I hope?

Lucy Gordon: I've got someone even better. Francesco Battaglia, a mob hitman. The DA has a solid case against him, but he's on the loose. You need to catch him in my stead.

Lucy Gordon: When you're done, just call me to the Caribe hotel in Puerto Rico. Good luck!


Detective: There must be something that the officers missed. Otherwise Battaglia would be in jail by now.

Detective: I wouldn't be surprised if Battaglia's crooks wanted to hinder my investigation by snatching clues and evidence from under my nose.

  • 5 footprints
  • 2 maps
  • 3 photos
  • Thief: 5 lockpicks
  • 3 fingerprints
  • 1 knuckle
  • 2 maps
  • 3 photos
  • 3 magnifiers

If you fail:

Detective: This is a wild goose chase, Lucy already covered all leads. The chief of police was right to send her on a vacation.

If you win:

Detective: Battaglia had a secret safe-house that the police missed. Maybe I'll search it and find out how Battaglia managed to avoid cops for so long.

Crime scene search: Nobody's HomeEdit

John Doewsky: I'm the superintendent of this building. How can I help you, officer?

Detective: I'm not an officer, just a private eye. I'm looking for a fella named Battaglia. I think he rented an apartment here?

John Doewsky: Battaglia... Sounds familiar. Check out apartment 4B. Here, the keys.

John Doewsky: When you finish, just leave them in my office. I'm going on a fishing trip. A long awaited vacation!

When you enter the bedroom:

Detective: Hmmm. It looks like a safe room, with the door locked. Maybe the key is hidden somewhere in the apartment. Probably somewhere out of sight.

If you fail:

Detective: He just vanished into thin air. I have no idea, how he managed that.

If you win:

Detective: What's this? An empty disguise kit. He's trying to escape using a camouflage!

Suspect identification: Wise DisguiseEdit

Detective: Based on the items missing from the disguise kit, I need to deduce how Battaglia looks like right now. He could be anyone...

Solution: John Doewsky

If you fail:

Detective: Battaglia is a real chameleon. I won't be able t[sic] find him now.

If you win:

Detective: No... it can't be. He was disguised as the superintendent! Where could he go? He did mention something about fishing...

City search: Skipping TownEdit

Detective: Battaglia probably has a boat hidden somewhere on the waterfront. But where?

Battaglia's boat is:

  • somewhere on water
  • not more than 2 from a port
  • more than 2 from gas stations
  • not more than 1 from a bus station

Solution: (5,8)

If you fail:

Detective: Battaglia probably already left the country. I don't even know the name of his boat, so he's like a needle in a haystack...

If you win:

Detective: I think it's this boat... The Lucky Fisherman.

Francesco Battaglia: You'll never get me, copper! Tell your girlfriend to send me a postcard when I reach San Juan!

Francesco Battaglia: You'll never get me, girls! Maybe I'll send you a postcard when I reach San Juan!

Detective: Darn! He got away! I need to call Lucy... maybe she'll be able to help me out.


If you fail:

Detective: I'm sorry to deliver such bad news, but I didn't manage to catch Battaglia.

Lucy Gordon: At least you actually tried to do something while I was forced to spend my time here! On this picturesque beach! Sunbathing all day! Reading dime novels!

Lucy Gordon: Hmmm, you know what? Maybe this vacation wasn't a bad idea after all...

If you win:

Lucy Gordon: I got your message, detective. I arrested him right after he disembarked in San Juan. He probably didn't expect to see me in Puerto Rico.

Detective: Don't tell me you knew he'd try to escape to Puerto Rico!

Lucy Gordon: You'll never know! And now, if you excuse me, I've heard about this new bathing suit, called the "bikini". I want to try it out.

Detective: I told you that you looked better without the uniform.

Lucy Gordon: And you'd look better in one. Or is being a decent cop too much for you, hmmm?

Detective: I found Battaglia, didn't I? Well, he tried to run, but in the end he wasn't harder to get than, oh, let's say a certain police officer.

Lucy Gordon: You'll never know, detective! And by the way, I have a new bathing suit to try out. It's called the "bikini". Maybe I should get you one? Not that you need any more male attention...

Detective: Do you always have to bring that up? You know, after my last chase Battaglia, McLean almost seems like a nice guy.

Lucy Gordon: Ha! I was thinking more about Bravucci, but you seem to always think about McLean. Why is that so?

Detective: And why do you always have to think about your job, even on vacation? I keep my friends close, and enemies closer. That's all there is to it.
