Gabriella was considered too cute to be a roadside artist, drawing pictures for passersby on Pearl Street. However, she was content with her modest lifestyle until the gruesome murder of a flute player in her neighborhood. What could be the motive of the killer; a platinum flute worth almost a hundred grand, to claim a strategic spot or to avoid certain inconveniences while still earning some revenues? It was a mystery murder and Gabriella was determined to help unravel the killer, not because she wanted to earn bounty for it but to ensure an innocent person wasn’t wrongly implicated. Moreover, the victim was a busker, a fellow street performer who only wanted to earn a living.
However, in trying to fix the puzzle, she may end up putting herself in harm’s way.
