by Eve Alessa Arevalo

The life of a detective is full of mystery, danger, and excitement. This type of lifestyle is like a drug, leaving practitioners of the field super addicted to their jobs and way of life, that they can't imagine their lives any other way. Though the major part of their job is searching for clues which are done on the field, the pieces most of the time can only be put together thanks to the advanced tools the headquarters have at their disposal. This includes a fingerprint detector, an interrogation room, a furnace and analysis room, and so on. And let us not forget the classic detective's office, which is usually scattered with clues and leads of all his unsolved cases. Though only detectives may indeed have a clue of what we are talking about, really anyone who has a flair for the detective space would understand. Well, if you are a fan of such movies or probably a detective yourself, you are surely going to love the new set by Lego. The name of the set is the Lego Detective Office 10246 set.
