Who is she?
4th March 2012
I get a call from Superintendent Bisotti. He needs my help solving the mystery of room 61. I get my stuff together and head for the Hôtel Design Sorbonne.
My investigation begins. I interview the staff, but no-one has noticed anything odd or unusual, especially as the room was supposed to be empty that day.
I take the lift. I find myself in front of room 61. A woman is lying in the bathtub in the middle of the room. I scan the scene, looking for clues. The smell of violets is heavy in the air. A negligée has been thrown onto the bed. On the dresser is an open bottle of red nail varnish, the brush dripping into a small puddle on the floor. The ventilation is blowing a thousand bubbles into the air. A waltz can be quietly heard coming from the orange telephone. The windows are closed. Only the curtain on the skylight is half open, letting a glimmer of light into the room.
What could have happened here? How did this woman end up lying in the bathtub? In fact, who is she?
