Plot

Soon after the Hellhound was arrested for her crimes, the Justice Enforcers headed to Swan River to investigate complaints from the rich and influential of the district. That morning, Helena informed the player and April of a murder that occurred on the shores of Swan River, the river the district was named after. There, they recovered the body of mysterious gentleman Edward Ramell, entangled in a fishing net with strangulation marks around his neck. Alexandre then confirmed that the net was used to strangle Edward before they suspected rich socialite Annelyse Pierce, famed sommelier Myra Jabari and the victim's newly employed butler Sawyer Westbrook. Soon after, the detectives were informed by Alexandre that he had found out that the killer had thrown the victim off the top of the lighthouse after killing him.

After April and the player investigated the top of the victim's lighthouse, they found clues to suspect a local fisherman named Milton Jakes and local socialite Melanie Brown before they found out that the killer intended to kill the victim the previous night due to their navigation skills calculating that the victim's body would wash away out into the sea and never be found again. They then found out that the victim was planning to disappear following the plummeting of his popularity due to rumors that Annelyse spread around. In the end, the detectives were able to fish out enough motives and evidence to incriminate Milton as Edward's killer.

Milton initially denied the accusations against him, but he then cracked and angrily confessed to the murder. Milton then explained that he was sure that the victim was the one who ruined his daughter's life and reputation. He then explained that his daughter was rising in the high levels of the rich society, her reputation well known and liked. However at a party, she was seduced into getting drunk before she was robbed of her most valuable possessions by a thief, which made her look like the butt of many people's jokes afterwards. After his daughter had killed herself over the guilt, Milton heard rumors that a member of the society had orchestrated the robbery, which led him to believe that Edward did it as his daughter had been robbed at his previous party. This led Milton to confront Edward, strangle him to death with the fishing net and wrap the dead gentleman in it before throwing the corpse off the lighthouse and into the river below. April then told Milton that he shouldn't not believed the rumor before she sent Milton to trial, where Judge South gave the fisherman 25 years in prison for the murder.

The detectives then went to interrogate Milton again about the robbery that ruined his daughter's life. Milton then explained that he had written details about his daughter's robbery after she told him about the robbery following the party. They then went to the top of the victim's lighthouse to recover Milton's journal, which they found in his tackle box. They then sent it to Valerie, who revealed that the journal detailed how Milton's daughter, Nicoletta, was robbed of her possessions after she was drunk into a stupor, which allowed the thief to steal her possessions easily without being noticed. They then asked Melanie, Nicoletta's friend and the one who invited her to the party, if she knew where Nicoletta's purse was.

After Melanie told them that Nicoletta had lost her purse at the party and if the thief left it behind, they would be able to find it in the remnants of the party. They then investigated the party scene, where they found an empty purse that contained Nicoletta's initials. After they sent it to Fleur, she told them that the thief had spilled a bit of a sleeping elixir with side effects of drowsiness and drunkenness like symptoms. This meant that there was a thief in Swan River that was behind a rumor in Swan River. They then asked Sawyer if he saw anything, where the butler told them that he had saw someone leave so sudden after talking to Nicoletta. Shortly after, the player asked Fleur if she could use her influence in Swan River to discover where the next party was.

Meanwhile, politician Daniel Hartmann asked Spencer and the player to help him find his lost engagement ring by the beach so he could propose to the love of his life, Rosalie Walker, the detectives tracked down his engagement ring and returned it to Daniel before he proposed to Rosalie, the latter saying yes before the newly engaged couple shared a kiss. Shortly after, Fleur told the team that she found out that the next party was happening on their own blimp. Chief Flanagan then told them that Daniel had asked him to host a blimp party for the rich and influential in order to spread his potentiality to become Deputy Mayor and the news of his new engagement. Chief Flanagan then told them that they would keep an eye out for the thief that was wandering to steal in Swan River.
