I have been playing D&D for a month or so now and I have realized that games I enjoy most are the ones that are Detective/Mystery centred. I have played Assassins Knot but it was far too easy and to find the culprit was even easier.

I am in search of a good Detective/Mystery adventure that revolves around questioning, interrogation and searching for clues. I also wish that the adventure be mid-high lvl because part of the reason Assassins Knot was too easy and boring was its low lvl cap. I will be the player of this so I need to send a module to my DM to learn.

If anyone knows the perfect module please tell me and having a link will be even better. Thank You so much.... oh and bonus points if you find one in a oriental setting :)

See the How to Ask page for help clarifying this question.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Be careful what you wish for...this type of adventure is extremely difficult to pull off at mid or high level because the PC's have so many supernatural resources at their command! – Neil B Aug 1 '14 at 9:50
Difficult for the player or the DM? I said I am going to be the player. Plus I purposefully don't take guidance, speak to dead etc. so it doesn't ruin the fun. But still do you know of any? – user15367 Aug 1 '14 at 10:50
Spells like speak to dead don't necessarily mean anything in the greater context of a mystery, as it is easy to explain as a forgotten memory of exact events, or that they were ambushed from behind/poisoned, etc. Also, the dead may think someone was responsible who had nothing to do with it. This is no different from the living. They will make assumptions based on their own personal bias and motives with little regard to the truth. – Aviose Aug 1 '14 at 15:32
Which game are you playing, D&D 4th or 5th edition? You have both tags, did you mean to use them both? (Why?) – SevenSidedDie Aug 1 '14 at 18:00
I am using the 5th edition, but my DM has on occasion altered the 4th edition quests to fit the 5th edition – user15367 Aug 2 '14 at 3:49
