After questioning them, the statements you take from Mr. Blue’s colleagues are sorted into folders which you can examine on your computer. There’s a lot of information to go through, but if you find two statements that contradict each other then you can confront your witnesses about the contradictions and squeeze more juicy info from them.

The characters are a particular highlight – each one is unpleasant in a different way and each one knows a whole lot more than they’re letting on. Will you be able to tease the truth out of them?
