A Taste of Your Own Medicine is a case featured in Criminal Case, it appears as the thirteenth case in Explore the World and the one-hundred and twenty-seventh case overall. It takes place in Eurasia appearing as the third case in the region.

Plot

The team set off to Saint Petersburg to further the investigation into Oracle, a male and female who orchestrated the assassinations and attacks in Europe. Once Riya and the player arrived at the medical centre, they entered and found the body of nurse Karina Smirnova by the front desk, grasping at her throat. Nia confirmed that Karina had been poisoned by a spray, later revealed to be from the victim's perfume bottle. The pair first questioned doctor Stewart Strange and scientist Aida Ashridge before suspecting Anya's nephew, secretary Vladimir Rusanov. As the team reconvened, Logan notified the player that a woman was throwing eggs at the building.

The pair investigated the front of the building and traced the eggs back to middle-aged woman Natalia Ivanova. Natalia confessed that she had bought faulty medicine from the centre but they hadn't refunded her, prompting her to throw the eggs in protest. They also questioned medical intern Diana Larsdottir. It was then reported that there had been a break-in at Karina's office, prompting the pair to go back and search there. After finding more evidence against the suspects, they arrested Natalia.

Natalia confessed to the crime, insisting that it was an eye for an eye. Natalia started sobbing and further explained that Karina was her late son's nurse. When her son had been involved in a car accident, Karina was the nurse in charge of his recovery. Unfortunately, Natalia's son passed away from his injuries, prompting Natalia to blame Karina for her son's death. Blinded by grief, Natalia bought poison from the black market and placed it inside Karina's perfume bottle, causing her to use it and kill her. When asked why she broke into Karina's office, Natalia insisted that she had no idea what they were talking about. At her trial, she was sentenced to twenty-five years in prison by Judge Emerson.

Post-trial, the player and Riya headed back to Karina's office to find out who ransacked it. Eventually, the pair found Karina's diary which revealed that two mysterious figures, presumably Oracle, would meet outside the centre often. The duo of detectives then searched there and found a communications device, which once unlocked, contained their hideout's coordinates. Per Takagi, it was revealed Oracle's hideout was located in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia.

Meanwhile, the player helped Vladimir organize a birthday party for Anya. After collecting decorations and helping the team to decorate the headquarters, Spencer invited Anya over and surprised her with the party. Anya then thanked the team before hugging her nephew. Following Anya's party, Logan decided that the team needed to head to Ulaanbaatar to find Oracle's hideout.
