Overview: Based on the best selling book series, Women's Murder Club by James Patterson's, this game takes you inside the lives of three woman (as opposed to the four in the books although you will see Jill inbetween levels) who fight crime. The series was also a short lived television show in 2007-2008 on ABC which was not picked for a second season. However, even if you don't know anything about the books or show, you're sure to love this great murder mystery type game which brings together puzzles and hidden object genre's.

The Characters: you will need to switch between characters from time to time in order to progress through the game



Lindsay – Homicide detective on the police force


Claire – Forensic Examiner


Cindy – Reporter for the San Francisco Chronicle

Other Characters

Jacobi – Homicide detective and Lindsay's partner

Jill – Attorney and part of the club

Tips & Tricks:

Locations: locations will sparkle until all possible actions are done there

Hidden Objects: on your notepad at left, you will see what you need to find at different locations, it will be crossed off as you finish it – several of the items to find will change from game to game, therefore I have only circled the ones that are needed for your Inventory

Inventory: these are items from the Hidden Object list that are placed into your inventory and will be in the same spot every time you play the game

Evidence: on the bottom of your notepad you will see what evidence needs to be collected at each scene, it will be crossed off as you finish it – not everything will be done at that location, you may have to return to the Police Station for further investigation

Hints: you start out with 5 hints per investigation, they are located by the characters picture in the form of a Police Badge

Sparkles: these indicate an action or puzzle area and need to be clicked on to activate

Puzzles: all puzzles are explained step-by-step in the guide but you can skip any puzzle you want by clicking Solve in the upper left corner

Investigation Docket: this tells you what items must be found for each investigation

Investigation Cards: this has folders on Evidence, Victims, Information, and Suspects in case you forget anything

A Guide to the Guide:

1. Red Circles – hidden object/inventory items
2. Yellow Circles – puzzles (note: I won't circle the larger ones which are quite obvious due to the sparkles)

Note: not every level is listed in this guide, only the ones that you may need help with, some are self explanatory or very much like a previous level

* 2nd minus 1st bottles = 4
* 5th minus 2nd bottles = -7
* Bottles 22, 1, 19, 12 & 15
* 22 – 12 = 10 therefore Bottle 3 is 22 and Bottle 5 is 12
* if Bottle 5 is #12 then 12 – x = -7
* 12 – 19 = -7 therefore Bottle 2 is 19
* if Bottle 2 is #19 then 19 – x = 4
* 19 – 15 = 4 therefore Bottle 1 is 15 leaving only one number that could be Bottle 4
