You know your way around the Library very well, and you even know how to operate the catalog system Alexandria. You can enter real quick, find the book and leave! There's no way the Librarian is going to find out!

You found clue #2!

You move to the next Location, the left wing of the Library, which is where the book about vampires is located... and, in a corner, obviously misplaced, you see a set of keys.You recognize these keys, they are usually hung in Mrs. White's office or on her belt. These are the keys to the Antiquities Room upstairs.

The Antiquities Room is a very special place inside the Library. Not everyone has access to it, in fact, you've only been inside a couple of times, the last one being the time you were doing some research for your Extended Essay on the feminism in Mary Shelley's Modern Prometheus and you needed to look at some old primary sources.

Why are these keys out of place?

Next ►

In Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, also known as "The Modern Prometheus", the final scenes occur…

At Frankenstein’s Castle

On the Scottish moors

Aboard a ship in the Arctic

Aboard a ship in the Antarctic

You find yourself processing what's happening for the first time since entering the Library. Mrs. White is dead, you saw her with your own eyes. She was murdered. There is no murder weapon around, but you found clues and you think the murderer is trying to hide their trails.The first clue you found in Mrs. White's hand. It was a dewey number that took you to a shelf in the left wing of the Library. The book you found was about vampires. How can you connect that to the murderer? Maybe the murderer likes vampires... or is scared of them... Wait. You suddenly remember Mr. Brown being angry at Mrs. White because she made fun of him for not reading Dracula. Dracula is a vampire... is that connection too far-fetched?Would public humilliation be enough reason for Mr. Brown to commit murder?

You found clue #3!

You folllow the second clue and move to try to find your way to the Antiquities Room, which is located in the second floor of the Library. The lights are off so you turn them on. Everything looks normal, just as you remember it from the last time you were there.

You take a turn about the room and your muscular memory takes you straight to the book you used as your primary source when you were writing your paper about Mary Shelley. There are no clues in this room.You close the door behind you, and while going down the stairs, you notice something is actually out of place. There is a yellow cloth lying in a corner of one of the steps. It looks exactly like the ones that Mrs. Green uses to dust off the books from the library.

She is very tidy and she would never leave behind any cleaning supply.

Map

You mentally draw a map in your head to remember where you've found clues

· The Dewey paper in Mrs. White's office

· The set of keys in the Left Wing

· The yellow cloth in the staircase (leads to Antiquities Room)

This clue is confusing. Is it a clue or just a coincidence? If the killer meant to leave this cloth in the stairs, what does it connect to? Mrs. Green? Maybe you should go to where no student has gone before... The Staff Room.

The Staff Room

You've never been inside this room before. You don't know what to expect. You stop to think that nothing is making any sense. The first clue led to another clue, which connects Mr. Brown to the murder, but then the third clue connects Mrs. Green to the scene, which makes no sense.Could I find some sort of evidence in this room?You explore the Staff Room with eyes wide open, trying to spot every single detail. Right there, on the table... there's an open book."Class of 1971"It's an old school yearbook! And it's open in a particular page... there's a picture of a whole class here.
