A series of unsolved mysteries have left the citizens baffled and the city virtually paralyzed. Known as The Vanishing Files, these unexplained crimes are so strange, they're considered to be all but unsolvable. But now Cate West is on the case, putting her own unique style of investigation to work in an effort to track down the answers. Will she be able to solve the unsolvable?

In Cate West: The Vanishing Files, you will assist Cate as she pieces together the clues to these puzzling and intriguing cases over 15 mysterious chapters. Search through 57 unique backgrounds to discover more than 1,000 clues, and rely on five different investigation techniques to help you sift through the evidence and eventually finger the criminal. Use your best detective skills to help Cate discover a link between these crimes and an unsolved mystery from her own past, and lead her to any of three different endings.
