Library
Stand up and talk to Henry Bolet at the right corner of the room completely. Look around this room and see a card catalogue of books in the middle shelf left of Henry. Check the Miniature Modelers trophy left of that book case. Open the 1991 silver trophy at lower shelf to get an eyeball. Pan left and check the books at corner left of fireplace. They can be moved and have tooth depicted on the bindings. To the left is another bookcase with an iguana on top of some books. Pan around and exit through the double doors to the hallway. Go forward and enter the great room (left down the hall).

Great Room
Go forward to the table. Look close at the miniature cemetery. Click/hold/pull the screen to see the different areas of the cemetery. Check the fountain close to the entrance. Go up and see the writhing tree. Look left at the crypt at the corner of the walled area SW of the tree. Check the big mausoleum left of the writhing tree. Look close at the roof.

Open the door and take a second eyeball. Go to the area above here and see an alligator by the swamp-river. Click on the alligator. Check the arch left of the alligator. Pull back and look at the book at right of the cemetery. See a list of the occupants of the cemetery and the areas where they were buried. Go to the left corner of this wall and see family portraits. The one at the corner is missing. Pick up the paper from the floor in front of the portraits. It is a tracing of a framed crow. Pan left and look close inside the fireplace. Take a burnt receipt from Zeke’s and a coal. Move to the coffee table and discover the marble puzzle. The aim of the puzzle is to get the pusher to the eye at bottom right corner of the box. The marbles and square can be moved to block the laser beam at center of the box. Use the keyboard arrows or the arrows in the screen to move the metal pusher around the puzzle. The reset is the square with the star at middle bottom of puzzle. When you win, take the third eyeball. Go back to the library. Talk to Henry completely. The empty frame had the portraits of Henry's parents. Learn about the miniature cemetery in the Great Room and the one Bruno oversaw next door. Exit the door to be outside. Go left and talk to Renée potting some plants. Look at a shovel with skeleton arm hanging on right wall; right of the first lantern. Look around the garden. There's a path to the right, past the stepping stones, that goes to a loquat tree with a wasp nest. The fountain at the center doesn't have water. There's a drain. Inside the drain are a key and a spider that bites! The path to the right of the fountain goes to Bruno's crypt. It has buzzards guarding the pathway and a master of buzzard on the roof of the mausoleum. The path left of the fountain is the wall, a mushroom and some herbs on the fountain side. There are fireflies there too. The path ahead goes out to the cemetery that Bruno oversees. Go through the gate.

Cemetery
Go forward to the other side of the fountain. Go forward to the other side of the writhing tree. See the lit Bolet Mausoleum. Look at the framed etching at the base of the wall and columns: 2 on this side and 2 on the left side. These are similar to the one seen in the roof of the miniature. Go back to Renée and talk to her. After asking Renée for paper, she gives her room key. Enter the house and then to the hallway. Climb the stairs. Enter the room at the landing. It's an empty sad room. Open the drawer and take a fourth eyeball. Exit the room. Climb the next flight of stairs. Use the key on the door. Open the top drawer left of the bed. Take papers.

Look around the room. See a work table with hiccup powder on the left. Look close at the glyphs on the wall. Check the chest with a blue circle and symbols on the cover at other side of the room. We'll do this later. Go down and give Renée the chocolate. Talk to her completely. Go back to the Bolet Mausoleum. Be sure that you already picked up a coal from the fireplace. Go through the gate and forward until the mausoleum. Use a paper on each of the 4 frames etched on the walls and columns. Automatically, use the coal to get 4 tracings. Go back to the great room of the house. Go to the miniature cemetery. Move the screen to the top left. Look close at the roof of the mausoleum. The object of the puzzle is to enter the correct picture in each frame. There are arrows on the side of the frame to cycle the picture. Use the tracing from the Bolet Mausoleum as the clue. Take note that each frame is different from the others. Take the gold key after you solve the puzzle. Go back to the Bolet Mausoleum. See Henry crying in front of the mausoleum. Use the gold key on the door. Enter and look at the headstone of Henry's parents at left. Pick up the rolled paper- portrait of Henry's parents at top of the steps at bottom right.

You are now playing as Bess. See a Gumbo mobile shop, a man across the street and Zeke's across the hotel balcony. Go across and enter Zeke's. Look around at the Curio shop. Go forward and right to Lamont, the owner of the place. Talk to Lamont completely. Go to the cabinet right of the door. Check the 5 bottles: crying powder, giggling powder, itching powder, stinking powder and sneezing powder. Bess automatically takes the sneezing powder after talking to Lamont. Turn left and face the wall with old piano. Stand on the scale and get an idea. The aim of the puzzle is to create a situation where whomever stands on the scale gets a dose of sneezing powder. Move the items on the shelf and piano to create this situation. Test the process by standing on the scale. Take an item and click it over another item to place it in that position. Test the set by standing on the scale. Bess will say “That will do it” if it’s done correctly. Go to the back room while Lamont is sneezing like crazy. Click on the box. See a picture of a young boy and dog. There's another picture of an iguana wearing a pirate costume complete with a hat. There is a skeleton costume with hat. Look at the letters on top of the wood box. Read the French vacation letter and the note with Hamlet and numbers. Check Bess' observations in the journal.

The signing physician was Bruno's best friend - Gilbert Buford. Note the eyeball key chain. It was Bruno's. Go outside and talk to Renée about everything. Go to the great room and call Dr. Buford. The answering service answers. Learn that Dr. Buford is at his favorite gumbo stand at corner of Rampart and Dumaine. Call Bess. Now play as Bess and see Dr. Buford sitting across the road. Go down and talk to Dr. Buford completely. Call Nancy. Now you’re playing as Nancy again. Go to the Great room and to the portraits. Study the portraits. Note that all the portraits carry a unique item and note that the arrangement of the frames is similar to the piece of paper found in Hotchkiss' book. Using the letters in the paper, arrange the portraits. A secret door opens.

See the books that have tooth on the binding. The bottom books are 5 books on each side. The top books are 8 books on each side. The bottom books represent baby teeth while the top books represent the adult teeth. The object of the puzzle is to click on the books in the order based on Booker's Teeth history.  Use the dental chart in the secret room as reference. The arrangement of the teeth in the dental chart is:

Baby teeth (from center to the back) - central incisor, lateral incisor, canine, first molar and second molar.
Adult teeth (from center to the back) - central incisor, lateral incisor, canine, first bicuspid, second bicuspid, first molar, second molar and third molar.

The baby teeth mentioned in the history: upper right second molar, upper right central incisor, lower left lateral incisor and lower right canine.
The adult permanent teeth mentioned in the history: lower right canine, upper left first bicuspid, lower left canine and lower left 3rd molar.

When looking for the book based on the chart and history, remember that you are looking at the mouth. So, the left side of the bookcase is the patient's right side and the right side of the bookcase is the patient's left side. Pull out the books based on the history and placements. When it’s done correctly, you’ll automatically pull back. Then do the second set of teeth (the one you didn’t do yet) the same way. When the panel opens, take the 16th eyeball.
