Storyline

You are the world-famous detective Maison Blanc, summoned to London to solve what appears to be another impossible case. You have come here to investigate the disappearance of Rita, a teenager who went missing a few months ago.

As you walk the streets of Soho to pursue your investigation, your renowned sense of observation strikes. You barely arrived here, and you already have a “tail”. Who is this strange man following you?

It was very enjoyable. We liked the clues and the history part. Congrats! The streets directions sometimes were a bit vague (turn left, turn right...). We found it a bit more difficult because we did it when it was dark (difficult to find the hints visually). The final question needs to be revised. Theres no blue plaque on the meridien hotel (maybe it was removed?) “Feather” was a wild guess.
