shelf  of the  bookshelves on  the back   wall you  can find  a book  by "Heinz
Ritter". On the right  top shelf of the bookshelves there is  a book on Snakes.
Read  both  books.  On  the  book  shelf  under  the  window  you  can  find  a
German/English dictionary. Open  the cash register and get  a gift certificate.
Use the "Question" icon  on Grace, and ask her for messages.  This will put the
Police Station  and Grandma Knight's place  on your map. Later  in the day, you
will need to ask  Grace to do some research on Malia  Gedde. (This triggers the
end of the day.)


Problem:

Members". This  will put the  cemetery on  the  French Quarters Map.  Go to the

How can I get a copy of the Crime Scene file?

Hint:
Request another  photo of Mosely  with you for  your book. Officer  Franks will
come in to take  the photo. At this point use the  dialogue choice to leave the
room, (Hold on a  sec while I go check my hair.) Once  you leave, take the file
out of  the in box at  officer Franks desk, and  make a photo copy.  (This puts
veve copy in your inventory.) Then go  back in for your picture with Mosely. If
you steal the file, officer Franks will no longer talk with you.


Problem:
Jackson Square

Hint:
Go to the  North West room of Jackson  Square, and walk close to  the mime. You
will notice he follows whoever walks closely to him. Get the mime to follow you
by walking up  to him. It is somewhat  difficult to make him follow  you. Every
time someone walks  close enough he will follow them,  so avoid other people if
you can.  Once you get him  to follow you, go  to the motorcycle cop.  The mime
will make fun  of the cop and the  cop will chase him out  of the picture. When
the cop is gone, use the "operate" icon on his motorcycle radio. This will give
you the "Crime Scene" on your greater New Orleans Map.


Problem:

pattern" in inventory. Take some clay by the waters edge.
