How to Be a Killer? is the third case to be staged at Espana Rosa.

Case BackgroundEdit

Suddenly, Velma appears and tells that she wants to stop the book signing of the book, "The Ways of a Killer," written by Shirley Waterfalls. She then reveals that Michelle Sparks is hiding at the press to murder Shirley after she actually read her book. Velma then assigns Lenard to be the player's partner, so Moriah could rest for a while and tells the book signing will happen at the Rosas Conference Hall, but upon entering the conference hall, they encounter Shirley's book signing is in smooth sailing. After the book signing, Shirley congratulates the duo for guarding her but suddenly a blackout occurred and saw a dead body in front of their sights.

At first they don't recognize the woman, suddenly Moriah reveals that it was actually Micah, the drug dealer. Thus, this made the case more complicated as most of the suspects know Micah in terms of her alias Sparkling Lady. After many twists, Lenard suddenly fell into a deep sleep and Liliana Valen was the substitute of Lenard for the rest of the case as they try to figure out who is the killer. In the end, the evidences shockingly point out Shirley Waterfalls to be the killer.

Upon being arrested, Shirley revealed her plan. She actually put Micah into a sleep using a handcrafted frappe and suddenly while she was preparing before the book signing, she put a time bomb in the circuit box by using the strategy she used in her book, which is the reason why she torn a page from her book. Upon finishing the book signing, Shirley pushed the sewing needle using her ring, thus killing her slowly. Shirley confidently revealed that she knew Micah's heart problems and used it an inspiration in her novel. Upon finishing her novel, Micah suddenly appeared and exclaimed that she will sue her with libel for using her in the novel; Shirley reveals that she will reveal Micah's real purpose and her comrades, so that the drug trafficking will be stopped in Espana Rosa. Micah, upon hearing the statement, she complemented Shirley that it will be an excellent masterpiece and she will make the ending, and she revealed that she wants Shirley to kill her indirectly. Suddenly, Hans arrived and shows the video recording and the video actually contains her conversation with the victim.

On the next day, Shirley apologizes for her rude behavior and Liliana and Hans pardoned her. Chief Truffles arrives and reveals that Shirley was pardoned for her crime, since the evidence does not exactly point out to her, shockingly reveals that someone else caused her death. After the prime investigation, Chief Truffles assigns Liliana to check up on Shirley and Michael. Shirley and Cedric thanked the player for clearing the household of any blood. Shockingly, Michael proposes to Tiffany and they are now engaged. When Liliana went out to buy food, Chief Truffles tells Hans that Lenard is in the ICU and wants to check the convention center for clues. Upon checking the center, they discovered that Romeo received a medal of valor and he gave a surveillance feed of the hospital. The one who put Lenard's life into danger is revealed to be a dam official, where this made Romeo confused since it would be impossible a dam official will do it. Thanks to the MPO, they discovered that there's a hostage taking in a town near the town, involving Romeo and the robber. Romeo reveals that the robber has been apprehended by the authorities but escaped after 5 years ago.

After the Lenard case, Liliana appears and was disgusted that they hid the truth from her, this caused her to be angry to Chief Truffles and Hans. This made her swore that she will be the one incarcerating Lenard's perpetrator.
