The Sydney Affair

This is the follow-up to The Vera Cruz Affair and takes exactly the same format You investigate the scene of a murder for evidence and then use the police computer to try to find the culprit. Has the same depth and detail but also the same annoyingly unintelligent keyboard responses when you get something wrong!
