[Sleuthhounds - The Valentine's Vendetta]

[The Valentine's Vendetta]

Murder most foul has happened at the gentlewoman’s club of the Crimson Debutantes, and on Valentine’s Day of all days. The only course of action is to call on club member Jane Ampson and her detecting partner Pureluck Homes to crack the contemptible crime.

The Sleuthhounds are on the case. Together they must monitor the movements of the club’s members, appraise (semi) fine art, dig into horticulture, and maybe even spark a romance between a certain feline detective and the club’s maid.

Play as both Jane Ampson and Pureluck Homes in this short mystery to locate the murderer before he has the chance to strike again.
