Description from the packaging.

Seven mysteries from the 13th Precinct.

The 13th Precinct is never dull. You're a rookie detective on Captain Reddick's crack force, and if you want to work here, you have to stay on your toes, keep track of the clues and watch your back.

Your beat is the streets of Queensport. Pulled from the files of the QPD are seven tantalizing cases to be investigated and solved by one to four detectives. Travel throughout the precinct, interview witnesses, gather clues and read the reports. When you think you've cracked the case, file an arrest warrant. But beware! Captain Reddick does not tolerate sloppy work. Come up with insufficient evidence and he might just bust you to traffic duty!

Here are just some of the cases you'll have to untangle:

The Case of the Peculiar Corpse:
The trouble begins when an unidentified body is found floating in the middle of Riverside Park Lake.

The Death of Reverend Slade:
The former confidence man and bunko artist is found shot to death in the chapel of his new church. Has the good Reverend reformed, or was this the biggest scam of all?

Lincoln's Acorn:
A priceless piece of American history disappears and Queensport's mayor gives you 12 hours to find it!

The Big Takeover:
Officer Janet Gale lies critically wounded in Queensport Hospital after being caught in the crossfire. Your investigation could clear her name, or was there a sinister motive behind the attack?

The Mystery of the Missing Tracys:
The Thanksgiving turkey is on the table, but Walter and Crystal Tracy are nowhere to be found. Is their disappearance a red herring? Be cautious on this one or you may end up a dead duck!
