did you know that there is a mistake on this case that you posted? you claim that at the bar while interviewing McCaffrey during either Question 1 or 2 (I forget which one) you say the answer is doubt when the answer is really lie and the evidence you need is the signed book...because of you and your incorrect information I had to restart this whole case so I would advise that you go through this case again, correct your mistake and retype this page before anyone else wastes their time with this false article. thank you.

So wait, you bought (or had your parents buy) this game, just to read through a guide step by step?  Wow, that sounds like money well spent.  You had a book with the guy's name on it...next interrogation try actually using your brain.

Interrogate Grosvenor McCaffrey:

@ october_midnight you can't solve the case if that game breaking evidence isn't there. I only use this guide for the interview answers purely because I was sick of making marginal mistakes with facial expressions and having to redo each specific question again so I could get 5 stars on every case so sure this game isn't for the average gamer and some do need to use guides.

How the hell do you get mccaffrey's testimony :\

Nevermind you need to bounce back and forth between the two perps getting them to answer only the questions that you have a doubt answer or you have the evidence for.

Nobody at All's picture

Going to Levine's before going Mensch's allows you to call Grosvenor on his lie of not knowing the victim well by using the signed metaphysics book in the victims makeshift bedroom. This also gets Grosvenor to tell you Tiernan and the victim were more than friends which you can use against him ( Tiernan )in the interrogation at central. Hope this helps.

Updated for the above change, I was going to mention the same thing and figured I should just fix it.
