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?

You are having a hard time solving cases in shanghai during a villain hunt. 6 of the 8 cases you manage to solve have the same clue. The other 2 clues are also the same.

The person you're doing a favor for clams up. That's just STUPID, I mean, they hired you, why should they not answer your questions?

GRAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!
I just got three cases in a row where the perp was the client and on top of that suspects and townies were clamping up left and right. I barley solved each case and I was only playing very hard. One case had three threads. I wonder if I am really that bad at playing this game or if Murphy just took a big crud on me today. Sigh, done venting, just sad that I didn't get payed for three cases.

Arianna, you've just officially joined a very large club. Most if not all Sleuthers have membership. Just repeat the mantra "I'll get the next one"

You got 3 hair PE and 3 of your suspects says 'Barber' as their alibi. :(

While visiting a new suspect on the list (browser is still loading), something told you that you found locked door. But the browser takes forever to load, so you can't click that Pick the Lock link and go to click refresh instead.

You play an IH favor, and are miraculously able to deduce who each of the 4 PE belongs to without even trying - two of them are matched by your contact, and the rest literally match themselves, due to specializations.

The catch? Out of the 8 suspects, you practically have no alibis to validate - you have 1 eliminated by Research, and 2 that claim the barber as their alibi (who happens to be the one who asked you to solve the case). One of those two match a PE, but has a real alibi. Everyone else has clammed.

It's times like this that make it abundantly clear that I need to make lockpicking my next skill.

I spend a long time trying to get a double breasted jacket. Seriously, I pretty much stopped playing after it wound me up so. I come back and get it.....but then remember that Im not in an agency any more, and the only way to get the jacket it to sell my treasured island blue :(

You go to your Client's house and get to pick the lock and you get motives, not an alibi....every time...

Yon need just the barber favor to finish the treasure hunt grom hell. You are ecstatic when you finaaly track good old Octavia down. Then you open the case and there are 4 hairs at the crimes scene. 5 people have Octavia for an alibi and she want's $350 before she will answer the first question.
