Secrets Can Kill Spoilers

Welcome to the new Computer Game Spoilers section of my gaming website. I added this section because I recently received questions about the plots of two different games which, to my surprise and embarrassment, I had totally forgotten the answers to. Then, to my further surprise, I was unable to find any existing website that would refresh my memory about the plots of computer games... lots of puzzle solutions, but no basic plot summaries.

So I figured I'd better write some of them down while they're still fresh in my mind, just in case I or anybody else wants to refer to them at some point in the future (or in case anybody suffers a major game glitch and just wants to know what was supposed to happen in the end-- I get letters like this from time to time.) If you haven't finished Secrets Can Kill yet and you don't want the plot of this game to be revealed to you, then you don't want to read this page. Please go back to my main Secrets Can Kill page, where I give tips and reviews without giving away any of its plot.

But if you are looking for plot spoilers, just scroll further down the page to find them!

Plot Summary

The setup and basic plot of this game is based on the 1986 Nancy Drew novel Secrets Can Kill. As in the book, the game revolves around investigating the murder of a high school student, Jake (making it the only game in the Nancy Drew game series involving a murder.) Although Nancy learns that several of the students had good reason to hate Jake, it turns out that none of them was involved and a drug dealer from outside the school was responsible for the murder. With the help of some of the high schoolers, Nancy manages to defeat the criminal and solve the case.

Character Subplots and Secrets

Jake Rogers: The dead boy. Jake was a juvenile delinquent who was blackmailing all of the other characters in the game.

Connie Watson: Connie is a judo champion whose secret is that she has been illegally masquerading as a boy to enter boys' judo contests (because the prize money is higher in the boys' contests.) She hated Jake because he used this information to blackmail her into going out with him. She has a crush on Daryl. At first Connie refuses to help Nancy and Daryl apprehend Mitch because she is afraid of getting mixed up in it, but in the end she shows up and disarms Mitch with her judo, allowing Nancy to grab his gun. In the game epilogue, Connie and Daryl have become a couple.

Daryl Gray: Daryl comes from a prominent family but has gotten into bad company, working as a drug runner for Mitch. Jake used this information to blackmail him for money. He helps Nancy by setting up a meeting with Mitch where she could apprehend him. In the game epilogue, Connie and Daryl have become a couple.

Hulk Sanchez: The high school's star football player. Hulk was recently injured and stole painkillers from the local pharmacy so that he could continue playing, hoping to impress the scouts. Jake was using this information to blackmail Hulk into acting as his personal servant. In the epilogue it is mentioned that Hulk repaid the pharmacy for the drugs he stole.

Hal Tanaka: Japanese exchange student who is very intelligent and ambitious. Jake caught Hal plagiarizing an essay and blackmailed him into doing Jake's homework for him. In the epilogue it is mentioned that Hal got an academic scholarship.

Mitch Dillon: You don't see this character till the endgame sequence, but he is an adult criminal. Jake apparently tried to blackmail him too, which resulted in Mitch whacking him. He is defeated by Daryl, Connie and Nancy.
