An Appetite for Murder is the fourteenth case of the World Edition and the sixth case of the Sahara Region. It is set in Timbuktu, Mali.


The World Police Agency went to Mali after being told that thefts were happening in the midst of the desert. Hungry, Max Storm stopped at a restaurant. There, they saw a food critic named Omar Ascofare choking on his meal. Shockingly, Omar was revealed as one of the thieves embezzling the Sahara. Soon, the team even revealed a DRS agent named Reem Benhoussan as a suspect, but later the killer was revealed to be Omar's rival, a food critic going by the name of Yusuf Barahir.

When Max came to handcuff the now-disgraced food critic, Yusuf immediately confessed. He said that one day while he was out on a trip, Omar had robbed his house. However, almost everything in the house was taken, asides a note written in blood. When he looked around, he found the corpse of his sister. Desperate for revenge, he slew Ascofare at the next restaurant that the victim visited. Barahir was then sent to trial.

Cosette Beaurigarde felt that although the saying went "revenge is a dish best served cold", murder was not the way to go. She said that the better way to have gotten his revenge on Omar would have been to have him arrested for murder and theft. Since Omar Ascofare ended up being the victim of murder, Yusuf Barahir was sentenced to 25 years in jail.

After the investigation, the team revealed that protestor Adam Souleyman was actually the one who had killed Yusuf's sister. Through Agent Benhoussan, they also found out that there was to be a military meeting in Tel Aviv, Israel. Chief Bourne immediately decided to go on the next flight to Israel.
