Description

Brent Halligan, a Scotland Yard Detective, is on the trail of a murderer whose victims suffered heinous acts of dismemberment. Similar murders took place years earlier, but the wrong man was sent to prison only to be killed before his innocence could be proven. When similar murders begin to happen again, Halligan is determined to solve the case once and for all.

Searching for clues, the mystery of the Skeleton Murders evolves bit by bit. Halligan has many puzzles to solve in this 3rd person mystery adventure game.
