In this second chapter of the Suspects
line, players embody detective Claire Harper at different stages in her life: from her school days, to tranquil Swiss lakes, as well as the first post-war Olympic Games!
Claire Harper was born in 1910. She is an avid reader of Agatha Christie, a world traveller, and more British than 5 o'clock tea. Oxford University admitted her after implementing quotas for female students in 1927. She followed in her father's footsteps and graduated with the key to unlocking her dreams: a degree in criminal law. Now Claire Harper investigates, observes, discovers, and thwarts. There's no mystery that is too twisted for her brilliant mind, no case that's too hard for her to crack. Claire Harper isn't just a detective. She's the very best.
In each chapter of Suspects

Your goal is to score the most points when you answer the questions about the case. The "faster" you answer (i.e. having drawn and read as few Clue cards as possible), the more points you will score.
