Take a Last Breath is the twelfth case of the World Edition and the fourth case of the Sahara Region. It is set in Algiers, Algeria.


The Tuareg Camp where Sidi was killed.

After the murder in Cairo was solved, Chief Daniel Bourne decided that the team had to go to Algeria for their next stop in the Sahara. There, they decided to take refuge in a Tuareg camp. When Agent Ricky Romano went inside one of the tents, he found the dead body of Sidi Hamid, a Tuareg nomad, gagged and asphyxiated. The investigation went out differently than usual as the World Police Agency's lab personnel had to set up in the nomad camp. What the team found even more shocking was that they had to place two secret agents (Reem Benhoussan and John Cameron) as suspects in the murder investigation and the fact that Sidi was actually a professional hitman. However, Sidi's killer was revealed to be none other than protestor (and self-proclaimed "protest-crush" agent) Ikram Boutaleb.

When Ricky came to cuff Ikram, Ikram first thought that he was merely being put in custody due to his avid protesting, claiming that this was a sign that the government was corrupt. Soon, Ricky and the player dug through Ikram's web of deceit, causing the latter to confess. Ikram slew Sidi because he had shot and almost killed the aforementioned agent of the DSR, Reem Benhoussan. Ikram said that he was secretly an agent for the DSR and not a protestor. He then claimed that Sidi had to die, as if he tried to kill one agent, he could have killed anyone else in the world. Judge Beaurigarde decided to give a 15-year sentence to Ikram for the murder of the hitman.
