This Story Starts with Your Death

In an obscure corner of the city, a single bullet takes your life, but that's not all it takes. When you awaken as a spirit, you realize you have no recollection of who you are. Thus begins your search for the answers to these questions: "Who am I?", "Who killed me?", and "Why was I killed?"

One night is all you have to answer these questions before your soul vanishes at dawn's first light, and your only lead is the female detective who witnessed your death...
