Like A Mystery is the twenty-third case in World Edition: The Mysteries Beneath by CoolCCMystery. It is also the first case in Eurasia, taking place in St. Petersburg, Russia.

Plot

Arriving in St. Petersburg, the team decided to investigate the Winter Palace for clues of the launch as it had happened there. Unfortunately they found the corpse of local businessman Ivan Lermontov, with a black substance seeping from his mouth. The black substance was revealed to be poisonous ink, which was shockingly used by the victim in his business when he signed papers for the Lermontov Business Shipping and Lawyering Company. Much to Samuel's disbelief, Anastasia Fyodorova was later found guilty of the murder.

Anastasia was very angry when the detectives came to arrest her, saying that she was completely innocent. However, when the evidence was placed before her, she snapped completely and said that the victim had used her as a tool to get the royal fortune and title. She claimed that she had given the victim everything that she was willing to do: money, blood tests, even a love affair with the businessman. However, she recently found out that it was all for nothing.

The victim had signed her papers with changes that would have given the fortune and title to him. She was so infuriated about what she had found out that she used her knowledge of the victim's deadly ink to kill him in an act of revenge before destroying the papers for good. When the supposed duchess was shipped off to trial, the judge was stern, telling that she could have reported the scams to the police, only to receive a response from the duchess saying that she wanted him gone for good. The judge then replied that she would most likely no longer get the fortune and sentenced the disgraced duchess to 40 years in jail for the remorseless murder.

After the trial, Samuel and the player questioned Ruslan Dmitriyev about the satellite's launch at the Winter Palace. Upon finding a blueprint with the president's DNA, they received news from the Black Dove Prison that the president, known as Arseni Aleksandrov, had escaped. Natasha Dmitriyeva said that it made sense that the president escaped was because the person who launched the satellite must have been the same person who helped Arseni escape.

They also unraveled the victim's wrongdoings, including taking finances from business owners like Adrian Smirnov and funding the president's plans unknown to his business rivals like Ignatiy Orlov. Finally they received a message from Sofya Dmitriyeva to head to Moscow as soon as possible. After saying farewell to Ryan Russais as he departed for a new adventure, the team headed south to the Russian capital.
