The Midas Touch is the thirteenth case of World Edition, as well as the third case to take place in Europe.


The GLA came to Athens because Mr Whitespirit claimed to be there. Moreover, they had to investigate the disappearing pieces of art and literature throughout Europe. Chief Shoko informed that Safir was at Gold Innovation Factory, where a murder had happened. Vasin and Safir, along with the player found the CEO of Gold Innovation, Zeno Ganis, with hot molten gold poured over him - turning him into a disfigured gold statue.

Mid-investigation, they found that Zeno was very influential, even having met the Queen of England, who demanded to see the player and told them that Zeno's murder must be solved and promised any help she can give. The team also met Addilyn Bowman, the abusive aunt of Harry, with whom he lived for two years before joining the agency. Addilynhappened to be a publisher who published Cernea's novel stolen back in Sweden, though she claimed that she was paid by a certain Mr Whitespirit to publish it. Later, Addilyn kidnapped Harry as Harry escaped her house to join the GLA. Once Harry was freed, he told the team that she practically treated him as a household slave. Addilyn was arrested for assaulting a law enforcement member.

The team found enough evidence to arrest Deadalus Callis, a worker in Gold Innovation factory, who spoke highly of Zeno. He tried to deny the charges, but when the former-Bollywood actor listed the evudence against him he had no choice to admit that he was the killer. Deadalus had no personal problem with Zeno, however, he had been offered a thousand dollars and a vacation to the Caribbean if he killed Zeno by a certain Mr Whitespirit. Thus, he killed Zeno. Judge Alaina Robertson was appalled at the choice of murder weapon, before sentencing him to 40 years in prison with no chance of parole.

After the trial, the team talked to Addilyn, in order to try to get info on Mr Whitespirit with an offer to bargain for her freedom. Addilyn told the team that she overheard the people who gave her the manuscript, and they talked about how the GLA would believe Mr Whitespirit to be the one behind the theft of art and literature. Addilyn was released as per the bargain, but the team searched thee printing press once more.

The team found a new book of 'Pretty Magic' series in the press, and Jenny Ripley confirmed that her new manuscript had been stolen. After talking to Jenny, Antonio told the team that Harry was psychologically shaken from the events of that day, and he should be able to get out his anger on Addilyn. The player went with Harry who let out his anger at his aunt.

The team also investigated the gold factory for more clues. They found a legal document holding Athena responsible for corruption. Athena told the team that she was constantly being framed for theft, murder and now corruption. She thought Zeno was behind that. Later, Haider partnered with the player to appreciate the Acropolis, and to look for clues. That found a childish phone, with a Friendbook post from Mr Whitespirit sending love to kids from Rome.

After the team informed the MI6 about Jenny's stolen manuscript but Mr Whitespirit being innocent of the theft, the team went to Rome to meat Mr Whitespirit.
