The hostess of a lavish masquerade ball has just been brutally strangled. Fortunately, there's a suspect. Unfortunately, it's you.

Like 'Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy' (not included in this download), you don't need to configure a Mac emulator to play these games, because 'Zoom' does the job for you, too.

For Zoom, please refer to its homepage at

To get the games recognized by Zoom, please add the extension ".z5" (without quotes) to the Suspect application name.
