Fritz, better known as the Parrot, solves cases using mathematical reasoning and metaphors from modern game theory. In The Case of the Missing Heroine, Fritz is enticed by a seductive voice to find two characters that appear in a recurring dream. All he is given is an old photo and a client that has a missing childhood. In the process of his investigation he encounters the stories of three famous heroines and a possible connection to the characters in the dream. He tries to build game theoretical models using ideas from Heisenberg and Von Neumann that give some sort of measure of randomness and information. In the end, is he successful in finding a quantitative method for determining the truth from a collection of four similar stories?
