afterthought. Smart will really help you down the line, but its less useful in the beginning. Rather, go for skills that will keep your witnesses talking to you. Smart gear is not very useful until you have all your advanced evidence skills. it lets you tell a right handed not from a left handed note - but until you have advanced handwriting, that doesn't matter much. Save that for later.

Thanks a lot! But just a quick question, what good does picking a lock do?

Locking picking will allow you to find out either Motive or Alibi from two of your suspects.

When you go to visit someone and they are not home, you pick the lock and look through their diary. You will get the information that way.

It saves you two questions per case.

Another question - If I get something from a favor and I already have my hands full, can I still get the item or must I decline it?

You'll have to choose which item to sell.

Thanks. I have the research skill but I can't see where to use it. How do you use it?

When you have your suspect list.

Visit City hall, and go to the hall of records. Research your current case. You will find out that one of the people on your list is not a murderer. That means you do not have to ask them for alibi.
