Stabbed in the Dark is the tenth case of the World Edition and the second case of the Sahara Region. It is set in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.


As of the events taking place in the Suez Canal and interrogation with Henrik Toivonen, the World Police Agency decided that it would be best to go to Dubai. There, Chief Bourne decided that everyone would be jet-lagged and sleepy. For that reason, the chief had booked tickets for the Burj Khalifa hotel for the night. However, Ricky Romano was not tired at all and challenged the player to a game of golf. From there, they decided to go to the rooftop golf course of the hotel.

When the two investigators reached the golf course, they found the corpse of well-renowned architect Khalid Al-Mansoori, found with a letter opener stabbed through his heart. Autopsy revealed that the victim was indeed stabbed by the murder weapon, but was first knocked unconscious with a golf club. After further investigation (including but not limited to finding the golf club), the team was able to incriminate the murderer as none other than professional golfer Tariq Rashad.

When Ricky and the player confronted Tariq, he immediately confessed. However, he refused to reveal his motives, much to the team's annoyance. Ricky was immediately ready to send the disgraced golfer to the International Circuit of Courts. Judge Beaurigarde told Tariq that he would get 20 years in jail and that if he revealed his motive, his sentence may reduce. Tariq revealed that he was part of the group embezzling across the Sahara. Somehow, Khalid had found out and was blackmailing him. Tariq slew him so he could keep his money. Cosette then said that the murder would give him 20 years and the theft 10, giving a total of 30 years in jail.

After the investigation, Mossad agent Aisha Hussain reported that a sapphire artifact had recently been mysteriously stolen. The carbonite powder was placed on one of the sapphires and further examination was performed, the dactylogram was shockingly revealed to have belonged to John Cameron, agent for the SIS. When interrogated, he claimed that he had stopped the theft from taking place. He claimed that the artifact was smuggled from Cairo, telling them to check out its local museum to stop another theft.
