In this interactive fiction you play a down-on-his-luck detective out to solve the murder of an accountant in his suburban home. Can you stay away from the bottle of whiskey in your glovebox long enough to piece together all the clues?

Be warned: this is a hard game. If you want to make progress, you're going to have to spend some time and you're going to have to think. However, the fine writing and high level of interaction with the surprisingly complex characters means this is a dark and enjoyable ride even if you just want to do a little part-time amateur sleuthing.

If you don't know what you're supposed to do, some important clues:
