Carlos Serrano has never solved a mystery in his life. And he’s counting on you to solve his first one. On the morning of a big investigation that would save her failing detective agency, Carlos’s mom gets sick with a nasty flu. But Las Pistas Detective Agency can’t afford to lose this case, or they will close down for sure. That’s where Carlos—and you—come in. With the help of his best friend, Eliza, and her wild little brother, Frank, Carlos takes over the investigation. The mystery involves an eccentric local millionaire, who starts receiving death threats. It appears that someone wants to get their hands on a buried fortune. However, the search for the culprit is complicated by tricky riddles, cagey suspects, hidden secrets, and dozens of impossible choices. Can you help Carlos and his friends figure out who’s sending the death threats, find a lost treasure, and save Las Pistas Detective Agency? Or will it be case closed? You pick the path, you crack the case!
