Just bought this and started playing with a friend of mine that tends to like noir, 1 on 1 and problem solving. We started playing the first scenario where he is playing the hardboiled PI.
The story and background is amazing and we are having lots of fun thus far. We aren't using the system he prefers GURPS but that's of little consequence. We are also playing it as a modern day scenario not necessarily in LA, but that is fine also.
I'm excited to see how this folds out. I'm assuming this will lead to more 1 on 1 scenarios as we play thru more of these scenarios and then eventually get into the "Trail of Cthulhu" with another player or two. The material is great!
