FBI Agent Nicole Bonnet is working on the case of the Puppeteer, a serial killer operating in the US between August and December 2007 - Art of Murder: Hunt For The Puppeteer - Game Guide and Walkthrough

FBI Agent Nicole Bonnet is working on the case of the Puppeteer, a serial killer operating in the US between August and December 2007. All of his victims were styled in such a way that they resembled puppets. He left his greeting card on every body he left behind - a puppet dressed in an outfit from the French revolution period. When it seems that the Puppeteer has finished his killing spree, a similar murder occurs in Paris. Nicole travels to France to check whether the murder was committed by the Puppeteer or if someone is copying the psychopath's habits...

In the second part of her adventures (just as in the first one) Nicole has at her disposal a system of hints: a magnifying glass near the bottom right corner of the screen shows all active objects and entrances/exits from the location you are in. You can also get some hints if you try to leave the room or ride away in your current vehicle too early.

The mouse cursor shows us exactly what actions can you perform - look at the object (small eye on the right side of the cursor) or use/collect it (hand on the left side, signaling a left click). The items you pick up go to your inventory (they're marked red throughout the walkthrough). Right clicking on them will zoom in and, in some cases, additional information. Left click will allow you to pick them up, open or disassemble, allowing to extract things hidden within.

This time Nicole has a camera at her disposal - she uses it quite often, at least in the first chapters of the game. The cellphone she has on the other hand, is completely useless.

Miss agent has also a notebook in which she records all of the dialogs, descriptions of each day of her adventures and the files for of the US Puppeteer cases (which occurred months before the story takes place) along with the murderer's profile.

All of the accessories along with the inventory are available at the bottom of the screen.

Double clicking the left mouse button forces Nicole to run. A single click forwards the dialog, and Esc button allows you to cut the cut-scenes short. In order to zoom out of the inventory item you need to press any button near the zoomed object.

Which of the mysterious men Nicole meets in her travels throughout Europe is the psychopath killer? Jack Dupree, Louis Carnot or Marc Taine? or maybe neither of them...?

Add the pencil that you got from the police and combine it with the stabler and paper that you find in the desk. When the finger print is darken,use the tape to pick up the finger print and tape it on a white would the print is more visible.

lenia 16/06/2011 10:55

I had the same problem, you may think the finger print is complete b/c once collected it looks like its on a sheet of paper but its not the tape is slightly yellow, so combine the finger print on the slightly yellow paper with regular paper and you do not have to put the book in a plastic evidence bag

I ahve gotten to the coin machine in the photo shop, but the game freezes after about 4-5 coins. I can't get to the end of the game to collect my winnings. Any suggestions? I'm at a stand-still.

Hey Elena55 Try the following and see if it works. I restarted a new game and i was still managed to get the facial sample from danseuse. 1. Nicole Bonnett arrives at the Ballet Rehearing Room. She has a "Camera with a flash" and "Business Card with telephone number" in her inventory. 2. Move cursor to Inspector and Left Click On The Inspector. Click On "Welcome" which appears at the bottom of the screen . Go through the conversation. 3. Next, "Nicole's Mission". 4. Next, "Details of the crime". 5. Then, "The Murderer". 6. Followed by "A Request" 7. Finally, "End Of Conversation" 8. Inspector leaves. 9. Left Click "Camera with a flash" in the inventory. 10. Move cursor to Danseuse and Left Click Again On Danseuse. Nicole will snap 2 pictures of the dead danseuse. 11. Mobile phone rings and Nicole goes through the conversation with her FBI Boss. 12. Move to the table located on the furthest left. There are 2 Drawers which can be opened. 13. First Open The Drawer in the middle and get following items , "Sheets Of Paper" , "Heavy Paper Stapler" , Tape" , "Plastic Sleeves For Documents". 14. You will notice a Blue "Hidden Button" on the right hand side of the drawer (After removing the Plastic Sleeves For Documents". Click On The "Hidden Button". (This will unblock the other Drawer which was locked) 15.Open the right drawer. 16. You will spot an opened book which is labelled " A List Of People Renting The Room" 17. Use Camera on "A List Of People Renting The Room" 18. You will have 3 Pictures Taken By Now. 19. Get The Following Items From The Drawer "Old Box Of Matches", "Pipe Tool" , "Cotton Wool" and " A List Of People Renting The Room". 20. Close the drawer and move to danseuse. 21. Left Click On "Old Box Of Matches" , move cursor to "Cotton Wool" 22. Left Click On "Cotton Wool" (This Will Combine "Old Box Of Matches" & "Cotton Wool") 23. As a result, you will get a new item, "Swab Of COtton Wool Made Of a Match" 24. Inspect Danseuse and get a close up of Danseuse. 25. Left Click On "Swab Of Cotton Wool Made Of a Match" , move cursor to her mouth area and Left Click again. 26. You will get a new item , labelled as "Dirty Swab Of Cotton Wool" If you get messages like "Trial and Error, they say" , "Nicole, Think !" , "This Wont Work" , "We need an alternative solution" , "These items do not match" , "No can do" , Look At Your Inventory again and check carefully at the Swab Of Cotton Again. The name of the cotton swab should be changed now to "Dirty Swab Of Cotton Wool" If you have "Dirty Swab Of Cotton Wool" In Your Inventory , (instead of "Swab of Cotton Wool Made Of A Match) , it means you have successfully collected the sample.
