Jack leaves the office. He wants to check Marsetti's office without him being there.

Develop the film taken of Susan and Howard:

Red bulb:    Enter the first room by the stairs.

Check the red bulb (which Jack needs) at the corner of the bench. Look close at bulb and see that there is a glass case around it.

Remove the glass case by pressing the buttons at the base so that all buttons are in recessed position.

From left to right, press (just one solution): 1 4 5 3 2 5. The glass is removed.

Use the handkerchief on bulb. Jack gets the red bulb.

1 2 3
4 5

Marsetti's office:    Look around. The screen at center is a closet.

Circular disk:    Study the totem at right corner of room and then check the circular disk on Marsetti's desk. They have similar icons.

Note that the icons on the totem repeats on each layer and are encased in colored frames.

Turn the rings on the disk to match the rings in the totem.

From top to bottom: cipher with line, trident, S-lightning, central P, spider, H and circle with 2 lines.

The totem's secret compartment opens.

    

Safe:    Look inside the secret compartment to see a safe.

Take a glass from the small table at left. Use glass on safe.

Turn the dial (up-down arrows) 60, 30, 70, 50 and 80.

Take a wad of money (~100 bucks) and the notebook.

Escape:    Hear Marsetti come back. Immediately use the closet left of the totem.

Marsetti uses the phone and finds out that Jack is Riley. He and Oscar look for Jack.

Go right to window and see a balcony. Exit and see the fire escapes on the left. The signboard is on the way.

Go back inside the office. Take the spearhead from the spears left of the shield.

Exit through the window again. Examine the N part of the neon sign and see a close up of the weak mounting.

Deduction:    Examine the notebook in inventory. It is in code.

Select the encrypted booklet and Slovanski's old man.

Slovanski apartments:

Slovanski:    Go back to the apartment at Essex St.

Use the notebook on Slovanski. Learn about Caesar's ciphers.

Decode:    Open the notebook in inventory. Slovanski says to substitute the letter that is in a position stated by the number associated with it.

Select-click a line above an alphabet and then select from the letters below the letter that it will changed to.

Later - I found out that the substitution number is 23 to the right or 3 to the left. Change the letter to the letter that is 23 letters away to the right or 3 letters away to the left from that written letter; for example - O is L which is 23 letters right or 3 letters left counted from O.

(I am not sure if the erased 9 and 12 at right side of the notebook is the clue for 3 away. I did this in a different way. Brooklyn was written on the map at left; so I selected an 8 letter code at right; which is #4. I entered Brooklyn on #4 and decoded the rest of NY boroughs from there.)

Jack reads the rest of the notebook and learns the names of all the members of Black Lily - including Leroy Malone.

Confront Malone:

Police Station in Hoboken:    Jack rashly went to the police station to confront Malone. Enter the station and talk to the service officer.

The officer tells Jack that Malone left a note for him - 5557589.

Jack's office:    Go back to Jack's office and use the telephone. Ask to dial 555-7589.

Get a picture for the passport:    Sean is at a bar in Brooklyn. Look around.

Take the documents Smiley left on the bar and the ashtray on the table where the little girl is sleeping in. Learn that Sean doesn't know the little girl with him. Talk to the bartender-owner.

Exit the place. See that this is Mource Gas Station from the sign above the station.

Camera setup:     Look around. See a lamp on the railing behind the car.

Click the white wall with The Bunion Derby painted on it. Sean says it's a photographic setup that needs to be plugged in. Check the stand (painted white on top part) at end of the platform. It has the camera that needs to be plugged.

See the water tower and cornfield behind the gas station-bar.

Go back inside and talk to the bartender again. Learn about the Winchesters, the neighbors that own the cornfield at the back of the gas station. The owner shot one of the Winchesters last night. Learn about the Bunion Derby that passes through every year.  He is not helpful about having a photo taken.

Check the wooden box on the wall right of the photographs. It is the power source of the camera outside.

Get power to camera:     Go back outside. Take corn from the cornfield to get kernels of corns.

Check the lamp on the railing behind the car. Remove the gas cap and see that it is empty.

Jack is in trouble:

Marsetti tells the story of how he met Oscar. Learn that they took care of Malone.

Hear Victoria scold Edward Marsetti. Victoria deduced where the little girl is hidden. She found Greta's hanky from Jack's pocket. Victoria is in a rush because she has a plane to catch. They left to pick up the girl.

Jack wakes up tied to the chair at the warehouse. It must be 6 AM.

Untie Jack:    Look at the control behind Jack. Use the control to start the big wheel.

Flip the black switch at left to turn the machine on.

Press button at top left, bottom left, top right and then bottom right.

Use the wheel to untie Jack.

Fix Jacks' nose:    Jack gets 3 tapes from his bondage. His nose is bleeding again.

Go to the table by the barrels under the window. Take Jack's entire inventory (except for the gun).

Look close at Greta's handkerchief at right side of table. Use the rye whiskey (after Jack drinks from it) on the hanky.

Use the 3 tapes that tied Jack on the hanky with whiskey. Use the taped handkerchief.

(The exit of the maze is at bottom right - way down. There are 3 pipes that lead to the exit. When you exit see that the stairs to the outside is unreachable across the way. There is a floating bridge here. We need water to flow to this area to float the bridge.)

Go back to the start of sewer maze or saved game. Jack enters at passage 32.

Go to top (Jack's right) and then left. Go up the 4 way intersection and see a valve. Turn the wheel until water is heard and the wheel stops.

Go back down to intersection and then continue to the left until the end. Go down until the corner and go left.

Take care of Oscar:

Airport:    See Oscar guarding the gate to the airport. Marsetti tells Oscar that he doesn't want Diaz (Victoria) to know that he is there. Marsetti wants to talk to Greta in private.

Distract Oscar:    Pick up the crowbar on top of the box under the window.

Check the pipes of the downspout. Jack makes a noise but Oscar checks only from corner. Jack wants him closer; so that he can hit him with the crowbar.

Enter the first doorway. Use the flashlight on the table with boarding pass, etc... Jack leaves the flashlight on at the desk.

Use the downspout again. Oscar walks to enter the room when Jack hits him with the crowbar.

Jack gets his gun back. Use rope on Oscar.

Hangar:   

Enter the hangar area. Check the windows of the hangar.

Listen to Marsetti and Greta. Learn that the little girl is dangerous and they all want her. Marsetti had a close relationship with Greta. Marsetti exits and goes to the plane.

Sean is at war with his conscience when he realizes it was the girl that he should take and give to Black Lily. It reminded him of his sister.

Escape the museum:    Sean carries the girl outside to the balcony. The Turk and Oscar are there. Oscar is left to guard the lobby while the Turk looks for Sean.

Go downstairs using the stairs behind Sean. At the lobby, Sean hides behind the crates at right.
