I may post something longer here later, but the second Post Mortem is a huge step forward from the first one. The case flows really well, there's actually a bonafide non-deduction puzzle this time, and the resolution of the case is very satisfying compared to the first. The evidence bags, while still annoying to open, have a much greater variety of items in them, and the way you interact with them is fun. While there's some mild sloppiness in the design of some of the items (some occasional typos here and there, and a strange formatting error with a line of text in the newspaper that made me think there was some mysterious hidden thing there when there wasn't), none of it impacts the experience in any meaningful way. Also, there's a rather nice and surprising MPC Easter Egg (I will say no more unless PMed about it).
Overall, if you're curious about Post Mortem, I wholeheartedly recommend Death in La-La Land over the first case. Likely still a bit too expensive, but the price tag is more justified here in terms of what's in the evidence bags, and the case itself is solid and engaging. Color me impressed.

diggitydoodog: I've had dubious documents for 2 years now and finally went to work on it. Would anyone on here be willing to PM me the answer or post it in a spoiler so I can check the solution?
