Overview

A priceless sculpture has been stolen from the Capitol City Art Museum! But with insurance money to cover the theft and build a new education wing, no one is overly worried about getting the missing art back. The only ones who seem concerned with solving the case are Clemetine and her friends. Can these determined detectives get to the bottom of the art-museum mystery before it's too late?
