Too difficult, in an unfair way. This doesn't improve on "Deadline", the same mechanics apply but from a different role (suspect rather than detective). Impeccable design from that standpoint, intriguing and complex enough, but you have to find all the right clues and, to be honest, a couple are concealed a bit too extremely: not only you need to use a verb not generally needed in Infocom games and not expected at all, but in at least two occasions you have a window of a few moves to be in the right place and note the significance of something. Surmising who did it is quick and easy, but proving it? This one is strong with the clues booklet, yes it is.
