A Desperate Mother’s Love

Roy Schroeder is a down-on-his luck Private Detective. He’s willing to take just about any job! So when a single mother waltzes into his office and tells him her daughter has been kidnapped…he tells her to leave and let the police handle it.  But she eventually convinces him that he’s the only person who can handle the job.  But he can’t do it alone!  He’ll have to hire some help.  Maybe in the form of a collegiate young lady and a voluptuous actress-turned-hitwoman?

In this prequel to the exciting detective adventure, In Over Their Heads, follow Roy Schroeder in one of his first cases.  Play as Angie and try to ace Roy’s unorthodox interview.  Investigate your client’s apartment and see if you can uncover the truth.  Oh, you should also try to the get the little girl back in one piece be cause there is nothing stronger than…
