Talk to EVERYONE, including your pal Dr. Watson! 2. Try ALL the replies you see on screen. 3. Look at EVERY OBJECT. Especially those you picked up. They usually lead to a new location on the map. Solved on: Sept. 30, 1992, Wednesday. Total time: Approximately 6 hours. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Go to Alley. Get cigs butts, battered piece of paper, white powdery residue, and iron pipe. Look at EVERYTHING! Like the corpse, abrasions, scratches, etc. Anything you can point at: LOOK AT IT. Likewise, LOOK AT EVERY OBJECT you pick up. Talk to Inspector Lestrade. Exhaustively use up all your reply option. It's also a good idea to talk to Dr. Watson or anyone else. Just use all the reply option. You never know what sort of information you can get from them. Open stagedoor and go into the dressing room. Get perfume bottle, spring (under the wardrobe), flower, and handwritten note. (REMEMBER TO LOOK AT EVERY OBJECT YOU GET!) Talk to Henry Cattruthers. Give him the spring. Talk to Shelia Parker. Tell Watson to give her a sedative to calm her down. Question Shelia again. Go to Sarah Carroway's Flat; it should be on the map now. Open umbrella; get brass key. Look at laundry basket; pick up sweater; look at rugby sweater. Go to Belle's Perfumerie (this will appear on the map once you look at the perfume bottle). Talk to Belle about the man who purchased the perfume bottle. Just exhaustively ask/answer her questions. Buy perfume number 4: Cote D'Azur. Belle will go into the storage room to get it; this is your chance to talk to the cleaning woman. Again, ask her about the man who purchased the perfume bottle.

Tell him to locate the person who sells this artificially dyed flower. Go to Southwark Morgue. Ask the coroner for the effects of Sarah. Try to get the large key. He'll tell you that you need permission. Talk to Inspector Gregson. Go to Scotland Yard. You won't be able to go in; go back to the Morgue. Talk to Gregson AGAIN. He'll fix things for you. Go in and talk to Duty Officer. He'll tell you to get lost. Go outside and talk to apparently blind vendor. Tell him that you need some advice on getting pass the Duty Officer or else you will turn him in. Go in and talk to the Duty Officer again.

Go right and show tickets to usher on the right. Go upstairs. Show your tickets to the elderly woman. Follow the dialogue and she'll give you a note saying you can have access to Anna Carroway's dressing room. Pump the elderly woman for ALL the information you can; it's crucial she tells you that Sarah's boyfriend (the one who HATES Sarah's pendant) name's is JAMES. Go down and show the note to the manager. You need to open up the drawer inside the dressing room. Talk to Watson so he can distract the manager by going into the closet searching for something. Open the drawer and look at the middle one. Get the ring of keys. Leave the opera and ... Go to 221b Baker Street. Wiggins should be back by now. If not just wander around other locations until he is. He'll tell you that he's located the flower seller in Covent Gardens. Go to Covent Gardens. Talk to the young girl selling flowers. Buy a flower from her first and then pump her for all the info. she's got! Pick up the flower bouquet in the barrel. Use the wire basket in the barrel to get the cuff-links. Go into the Moongate pub. Ask the bartender (publican) about the cuff links. Then ask him about the guy who came into the bar. You'll have to beat him at darts before he gives you this bit of info. Challenge the other three drunks. Beat them and then challenge the bartender. Go to Hattington Street Chemist. Buy any potion from the chemist first. Then talk to the stockboy. Pump him for all he's got. Go to South Kensington Field. Now the guy you're looking for his named James. You need these three pieces of info. in order to find him. What he smokes (from the cleaning lady in Belle's Perfumerie), his name (from the elderly woman in the opera), and his physical appearance (from Belle of Belle's Perfumerie). If you have all that then talk to the coach and James will come running out from the field. Talk to him about Sarah Carroway. Then lower the boom by showing him the perfume bottle! Go to the Dormitory. Talk to James; in the end he won't believe his beloved Sarah's dead until you bring him PROOF ... like a death certificate.

Be sure to grab the calling card of Jacob Farthington, Barrister. You can ignore the calling card of Antonio Caruso. Now MOVE the left plant pot to spill over some dirt. Go upstairs and talk to the cleaning lady. Tell her you spilled some dirt downstairs. When she's gone move the statue and get the book. Look at the book. Go to The Law Officer of Jacob Farthington.

He won't tell you who purchased the cap. Not yet at least. Look at the coat of arms. Some of them are FAKE! Cry fraud and watch the two customers depart! Talk to Watson and see what he thinks and then talk to the counterman again. Now he's singing a different tune! Go to Bradley's Tobacco Shop. Talk to the young man behind the counter.
