Sweet Revenge is a case featured in Criminal Case as the ninth case of Mysteries of the Past (Season 4) and the one-hundred eightieth case overall. It takes place in the Elysium Fields district of Concordia.
The Concordian Flying Squad went to Rockley Rochester's chocolate factory to ensure safety at Mr Alastor's third soirée. In a chocolate river, Isaac and the player found the body of Jack Goodwin, stuffed with chocolate.
Mid-investigation, Evie discovered that Jack was actually a port worker who had committed theft and then disappeared to mysteriously blend in the high society. Later on, Chief Inspector Eleanor Halsted drank too much and tampered with one of Rockley's machines, causing a chocolate explosion. The team found enough evidence to arrest Violetta Blue for the murder.
After denying involvement, Violetta admitted to the crime. Violetta could not stand when Jack started dating Verushka Coldwell, whom she loved. Feeling betrayed, Violetta tied Jack with licorice candies and used Rockley's Chocolometer 1000 to stuff him to death with chocolates. Judge Takakura sentenced her to 15 years in jail without parole.
After the trial, Isaac and the player talked to Rockley about Mr Alastor. Although he did not know him, Rockley allowed the team to investigate the chocolate river, where they found Mr Alastor's guest list for the soirée at the factory. Per Evie, the list showed that Alastor had been calculating the odds of the likeliest victim and the likeliest killer in the parties, which led the team to believe that Alastor was organizing the soirées with the intention of having murders. Upon interrogation, Violetta said that she did not know Mr Alastor despite him predicting that she would kill Jack. Furthermore, she remembered overhearing someone talking about Alastor in the factory entrance, where the team found Seamus O'Neill's party services bike. While he did not personally see him, Seamus remembered providing services for Alastor as he was his first customer, and that his fourth soirée would take place at Prospect Gardens.
After the team returned Rockley his chocolate chess set, the Squad headed to Prospect Gardens.
