Kaboomstan is the seventh case of World Edition, as well as the second case to take place in Eurasia.


The GLA came to Kazakhstan after learning that a Red Union procession was taking place here. However, the leader of Red Union, Kazakhstan, Serik Tairov branch was taken under arrest after Kazakh police found evidence that he was involved in terror activities and the procession was cancelled. Isabelle and the victim went to question the leader, however they found hims dead - exploded into bits.

After meeting Stella's brother, Vadim Yankov, and figuring out who stole Serik's gun, the team gathered enough evidence to incriminate Larisa Otunbova as the killer.

Larisa tried to denied the charges at first but soon admitted to her crimes. She said that the victim and she had an affair and he told Larisa that they will live together, forever. Larisa, believing Serik, divorced with Oraz Otunbov, her husband. However, Serik was not serious with her and told her that he was just playing with her. Larisa, pregnant with Serik's child, was infuriated. She was a poor nomad who could not afford the expenses of a child. To take her revenge, Larisa killed Serik. Judge Robertson sentenced her to 8 years in prison.

After the trail, the team talked to Larisa if she knew anything about Red Union's involvement in terrorism. The only lead on Serik she was able to give was a broken vial he gifted to her, which was restored and found to have been bearing a symbol on it. The team decided to investigate nomad lands to see if Larisa had any other thing of Serik which she forgot to remember.

The team found a paper from Karl Marx's book The Communist Manifesto, and found the same symbol on it. Haider said that it was a symbol of communism. He suggested to check Serik's cell to see if he managed to smuggle in any thing. The team found Serik's mobile phone and it turned out that he told his party member, Daulet Jeanov, to find an American fantasy writer, Jorge S. S. Marty, who was in Siberia to search about his new fantasy novel, The North.

Meanwhile, Stella wanted to check up on his brother. She asked the player to accompany her to the museum where his brother was. The team found a stone with Vadim's blood on it. Vadim told the team that he only tripped, while saying that he was pleased to see Stella. Vadim told Stella that a lot of tension had been going on in Russia, with the Red Union rising and the government considering a military operation against the notorious communist party.

After reporting all this to Chief Shoko, she decided that the team should go to Siberia to find out what the Red Union wants with Marty.
