In this second Carol Reed game, she has taken over the detective agency from her deceased friend. She doesn't have many cases to solve, until another friend calls her about an acquaintance who seems to have gone missing.

As with Remedy, the earlier Carol Reed game, graphics are real photographs with a waterpainting filter overlay. First person point-and-click adventure with inventory-based puzzles, some of which can be skipped.
