User Summary: You are the private investigator who solved the Harlowe Thrombey murder case, but you're growing bored with your profession. It's time for something new: ghost hunting!
Demian's Thoughts:

This direct sequel to Who Killed Harlowe Thrombey? isn't quite as good as its predecessor in terms of goal-oriented gameplay, but it's still a slightly better-than-average entry in the series. The writing is decent, the story is adequate (though unexceptional), and most paths through the book manage to be quite lengthy without being slow-moving.
