It’s Time to Do Some Sleuthing

When the cops are crooked, and your boss is accused of a crime he didn’t commit, it’s time to roll up your sleeves and get cracking. Jump into the world of Detective Gumshoes.

You and your cronies are junior detectives working for the brilliant Detective Gumshoes. When the police aren’t able to turn up any suspects for a recent string of local jewel heists, your boss was hired. He soon discovers the shocking truth. Apparently, the honorable Judge Shadie Krook is not so honorable after all. The Judge and a handful of crooked cops make up the nefarious Bling Ring, and they are responsible for all the thievery.

The Bling Ring knew that Detective Gumshoes was hot on their trail and was onto their illicit behavior. That’s why they planted some jewels in the good Detective’s office and called the cops — aka themselves! Detective Gumshoes had to think fast. If caught with the jewels when the crooked cops showed up, they’d be able to frame him and destroy the real evidence in the process. So, Detective Gumshoes cleverly hid the jewels and evidence incriminating the Bling Ring somewhere in his office.

The only way to find them is for brilliant detectives such as yourselves to figure out a series of puzzles and clues left behind by Detective Gumshoes. Right after he hid the evidence, he was arrested, but the crooked cops couldn’t find any of the planted or real evidence.

Using his one phone call, Detective Gumshoes called to tip you off to the situation. He asked you to get the jewels and the evidence to a trusted cop he knows. Unfortunately, the crooked cops are rushing back to his office. You only have one hour in Gumshoes’ office to find the jewels, get the evidence that incriminates Judge Shadie Krook and the other crooked cops, figure out who the good cop is and get out the back door before they arrive.

Phew. Will you be able to get your boss out of the clinker before time runs out? It waits to be seen.
