How is this supposed to work???
I tried to use in on a witness that clammed up.
She got the slip on more info.
Something I need to know, or understand about this?
Will this tell me an alibi or just more suspects or what?

It doesn't always work. Wearing smart gear will help but there's no guarantee.

If it does work, you'll get more questions for that suspect and you can choose what to ask.

Yes it is unfortunate but Surveillance doesn't always work and once you've tried it that's it whether it worked or not. Your chances at getting it to work increases with the amount of Smart equipment you have.

As for what it does it enables you to question your suspect on what you wish to know. For example you might want to find an additional suspect or you might want to get an alibi or find out if your suspect knows anything. If I remember correctly you can get two questions out of your suspect.

I hope this helps :-)

yeah, everything in this game has no guarantee.

1) you have high on smart, but not necessarily managed to analyze all PE in crime scene.

2) you have high on charm and JOC tells you that the suspect will answer better to charm and you've used charm, but the suspect clammed up.

3) you have high on smart, you've used surveillance, but it doesn't always work.

there's 4 PE townies and at least 6 - 7 WE townies in each cities and you're only able to get one of each if you're lucky and have at least 80% of not able to solve all cases when you didn't get the cases that depends on your PE contact, so what's the point of getting high xp, go for AVH, earn gold equipments, yet everything comes down to "doesn't always work".

if 30 in charm guarantee 3 more answers from suspect upon questioning, 20 for 2 and 10 for 1, then it would be better for players to know when to ask for answer.
