There isn't a detective alive who can outwit you. Probably.

Challenge information

  • 1 - chancy (60%)

Elementary, my eye!

The detective hares off after your carefully planted series of clues. The local criminals are impressed by your cunning. You do not expect to see the detective again.


A matter of funds

The false trail doesn't work, and the detective hounds your steps for days. Eventually, his money runs out, and he is forced to take up other cases. Some time later you hear that he has a thriving consultancy. He seems to have forgotten about you.
