Linda and the player were at the Starlight Shores railway to meet Danny Lewis as the Chief had said in the last case. When they arrive Charlie Newark asks them for help as he thinks he found a dead body. After investigating Platform 94 they discovered Danny Lewis' body on the train tracks, electrocuted by the electrified tracks.

In Chapter 1, three people were suspected: Charlie Newark (a train driver), Bruno West (a banker) and Charlotte Darkens (the victim's girlfriend).

In Chapter 2, two more people were suspected: Vivienne Bird (mayoral candidate) and Brian Kolinsky (a childhood friend of the victim).

The killer turned out to be Bruno West. He killed Danny as he had discovered Danny was texting his girlfriend at the time someone tried to kill mayoral candidate Vivienne Bird. Bruno explained he loved Vivienne and he blamed Danny that she was nearly hurt. He was sentenced to 10 years in prison.


Newspaper about Frederik Maragway

In the Vote of the Century (1/6), Brian Kolinsky asks if you could help him find a newspaper report about his father who died recently. His father was the police officer who caught Frederick Maragway, an infamous serial killer of Central City who would chop the hands of young girls off. Rico Maragway was also known as the Limbless Man.

Also, Vivienne Bird believes someone may have planted a bomb in her mayoral headquarters. After the player and Linda investigate they find a gift box full of chocolates and a vote for Ketcher leaflet. After talking to Roy Ketcher about this, he invites them to a Winter Ball he is hosting to further his campaign. At the end of the case the player and Linda set off to go to the Ball.
