Return to the entrance hall and try to go down to storage to be stopped by the porter. Talk to the porter twice to get Warren’s phone number. Open the PDA and select Warren from the address book to call him: He has switched off his phone. Talk to the porter and he will agree to let Nicole down to the storage room. Run down to the storage room.
Open the light switch casing to see the light switches. This puzzle is random so it is not possible to give an exact solution. The aim now is to move the switches so that the dark storage room is lit up. You can either have all five lights lit up, or two lights on the left and two lights on the right in the order shown below:
Once the correct lights are on, take the flight case from the shelf at the bottom-left corner of the room and the dinghy on the floor at the top-left corner of the room. Run north at the right side of the room to the furthest part of storage. Open the flight case from the inventory and then select it to take a portable x-ray scanner. Use the dinghy on the gap between the crates at the top-right corner of the room:
Use the fire extinguisher on the folded-up dinghy to move the small crate. Use the portable x-ray scanner on the crate above the dinghy to reveal a set of knives with one empty space where a knife with a curved handle is missing. Press the red button to turn off the scanner. Run back to the other side of the storage room.
Combine the portable x-ray scanner with the empty case in the inventory. Use the flight case on the little area for various cases on the middle shelf at the bottom-left corner of the room. Run south to the hall. Talk to the porter to tell him about the missing ritual knife. Exit the museum and wait a few seconds to receive a message from Nick about a new murder of a stock broker named John Rudolph. Use the car.

Return to the lounge and run north-east to the pool table room. Examine the pool table. Take the blue ball from the slot. Use the blue ball on each pocket until something blocks the ball. Use the umbrella in the inventory to make a spoke. Use the spoke from the umbrella in the pool table pocket and a new object will roll into the slot. Take the figurine. Exit the table view. Return to the lounge. Exit the villa and use the car to complete the first day.
Enter the headquarters. Nicole mentions that she should place the figurine in the evidence deposit room, but the room requires a magnetic key card to enter. Go upstairs and enter the agents’ offices. Examine Nicole’s desk and take the origami at the top-right corner of the desk. Open the origami in the inventory to see a city plan. Back away from the desk. Run south to the front office and take the magnetic key card on Ruth’s desk.

Enter the museum. Enter the exhibition room and give the completed form to Warren: The porter will help remove it from the display case. Run south to the hall and talk to the porter: He agrees to open it. Return to the exhibition room and examine the golden figurines. Open the display case door and take the right gold figurine. An object of equal weight to the gold figurine must now be put into the display case to stop the alarm from going off or else the porter will not let Nicole leave the museum. Exit the view of the display case and run right to the orangery.
Examine the vases at the bottom of the room and take one. Take a handful of potting soil from the bottom-left corner of the room. Combine the potting soil with the vase to fill it. Take some more potting soil. Return to the exhibition room and examine the golden figurine display case.
Use the vase on the display case and watch the alarm light. If the light flashes red, take the vase back, add some more potting soil to it and then put the vase back on the display case. If the light continues to flash red, take the vase, return to the orangery, examine the vases, put the vase on the terracotta, take a different vase, take some potting soil, combine the potting soil with the vase, take some more potting soil, return to the exhibition room, examine the golden figurine display case and try the new vase on the display case. If the alarm light stays red, add more potting soil to the vase, and try again. If the second vase doesn’t work, try the whole process again with the third vase. When the light has turned green, exit the museum and use the car.

Combine the dental records with the jaw bone to identify the remains as being Professor Dickinson. Back out of the view of the box and the bookcase. Exit the museum to see Warren. Talk to Warren four times: He believes that Raches is the killer. Use the car.
After Nicole follows Warren to the subway, Chaser calls and demands to see the report. Nicole automatically returns to the FBI headquarters.
Use Raches’ photo with the ruling on Nicole’s desk to compare the signatures of Chaser and Raches. Return to the front office and talk to Ruth: She says that she is going home. Enter the study. Examine the desk. Examine the cabinet to see a safe.
The aim now is to spell the word RACHES. The numbers on the dial represent the letters: 1 being the first letter, 2 being the second and so on. Point the dial to 1, then move the letter to R by clicking at the top of the dial. Select 2 and move the letter to A. Do the same thing for the other letters until RACHES is spelt. Move the lever to open the safe. Select the sheep of paper, photos and the ticket. Exit the headquarters and use the car.
Run toward the subway doors at the right side of the screen and then go through to the platform. Run to the scaffolding at the other end of the tunnel and take the isolated pliers on the plank of wood. Exit the platform and return to the square. Run north to the tenement. Open the door to enter the first floor.
Go upstairs to the second floor and examine the electrician’s notes at the left side of the elevator: Switch box 20/07WB needs to be bypassed. Back away from the view. Take the uninsulated wire at the right side of the elevator. Go upstairs to the engine room. Examine the box at the left side of the engine. Combine the pliers with the uninsulated wire. Use the pliers gripping a piece of wire on switch box 20/07 WB. Back out of the view. Go downstairs to the first floor, open the elevator door and then enter the elevator to descend to the basement.
Take the skewer on the crate at the bottom-left corner of the room. Run through the doorway to the boiler room. Use the pliers on the knob at the right side of the boiler to take it. Use the skewer on the barrel to empty it: Nicole will automatically move it below the ladder. Climb up the ladder to the abandoned platform. Enter the passenger cabin of the train. Use the knob on the brake. Use the brake to complete the game.
