For the cheerfully pessimistic detective!

1. Your client did it.

2. Buying Advanced Thread Analysis means that all threads immediately disappear from the crime scene.

3. The question you need answered most is the one the witness clams up on.

I'm sure more experienced players can add to the list. Care to have a go?

4. You have all the skills in advanced bar one. You do a favour which is for a Treasure Hunt. The evidence is the skill you don't have multiplied by 3x.

5. The suspect your research eliminates will have your contact for an alibi (and you'll find that out by picking the lock).

When you finally get your PE contact, evidence for that contact will suddenly become extremely scarce.

6. Suddenly a second suspect with the same name as the person whom was the killer shows up.....out of no where.

6a. (to Dionne's rule) when you're relying on WE, your last hope will *always* die.

Your client won't talk, you use lockpicking, and of course it is who they suspect, not their alibi...

First off, my two contacts are The Fortune Teller, and Shoe Maker." Now, I open a case and find all the crime scene evidence is four threads. Then I check and find all suspects, with fake alibis used the Tailor for their alibi..lol. I ask the Tailor about the first suspect and the Tailor clams up on me. I then try "Bending the Rule," at which time I have to bribe the Tailor with $350 for the answer, but the Tailor takes my money and still clams up on me. On top of all of this, while I'm asking suspects "Who had Motive to Kill," most of them clam up on the second question. So, even though I'm able to narrow it down and find the guilty suspect, then I can't accuse because I wasn't able to find out their motive by the suspects that clammed up early on. Wow, now this is a complicated case..hehe, but keeps it interesting.
