"Death in Scarlet stars the characters from the James Patterson series, but this story is completely new for the game. It's not a long story, but I found it meaty and satisfying none-the-less. While there are four main characters in the Patterson stories, you'll only actually be playing three of the characters in Death in Scarlet. Lindsay is the homicide detective. Claire is the forensic examiner. Cindy is the newspaper reports. Jill, the assistant district attorney, makes some appearances during the game, but you won't actually play as that character. Of the main characters from the books, Jacobi, Lindsay's partner, is also part of the story. You'll see him and he'll be part of keeping things moving along, but you won't be playing him either."
