Storyline

The year is 1926 and you are Olympus Peraux, world-famous detective, returning to his homeland of Belgium on a top-secret mission. You have been hired by the young Princess Astrid of Sweden, who, with her wedding to Prince Leopold of Belgium fast approaching, has grave concerns about her safety. The Princess has received an anonymous threatening letter by carrier pigeon, demanding that she must either cancel her Royal wedding or else be murdered at it!
