Chronicles of Crime: Noir is an expansion authored by Stephane Anquetil, a very talented writer with credentials including Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective scenarios.
In Noir, the whole group is collectively representing one private detective with unconventional methods. Instead of Forensic Contacts, players have 4 action cards they can use at any point and any moment:
Spy, Break-In, Bribe, Intimidate
You won't be able to intimidate everyone without repercussions. Also, your money is in a shortage, so you can't bribe everyone you meet.
Noir really brings another side to crime busting!
You need a copy of the Chronicles of Crime base game to play this expansion.
