You are Detective Riddle, eccentric investigator extraordinaire. The Vatican Museums have called you back to chase up a new lead on a cold case, the most recent of Cecil Hastings II’s “retouching” crimes against art (and humanity). 

Cecil is a pensioner turned artist who was once paid good money to restore a Zeus painting which ended up becoming a meme. He aims to “Improve” the world’s best art in revenge, by any means necessary.

For the love of all things aesthetic, please catch him!
