We're in a swanky hotel, but we can't stay, sadly. There are three clubs
in the area: a blues bar (Blue Oyster), a rock bar (Rocker's Choice), and a
salsa bar (Latin Fever). Our first task is to track down Raymond. Each club
has a strict dress code and won't let you through the front doors without the
appropriate attire, however, each club has a back ally with a door or window
that you can sneak through. As an added bonus, the Chef in the Blue Oyster
(across from the hotel) is all on his own and very lonesome and can easily be incapacitated
and robbed of his whites. This, of course, will allow you full access to each
club, making finding Raymond much easier.
is randomly assigned to the back room of one of the clubs, and each
back room can be accessed via the kitchen. You even have to climb some obstacles for the rock bar. Once you find and kill Raymond Kulinsky,
take his oversized Bird suit
and his Walkie-Talkie (and his lovely Desert Eagle
while you're at it). With the Walkie-Talkie, Angelina Mason and Mark Purayah Jr. will appear
on the map - pretty vital for finding Ray's girlfriend when the time comes.
Until that time comes, you'll want to stay the hell away from her, as if she
sees you dressed like this, she'll blow a fuse. Also leave the bar the way you came in when you wear the bird suit.
Enter the large building at the top of the map (north-west, compass fans).
Upstairs, you will find a lone Bird Guard and, in the next room, Mark Jr.
Just hang back until the red Delivery Bird has been and gone before sedating the
Bird Guard and pilfering his yellow suit (drag him into the corner nearest the door so
that Mark Jr. can't see him when you go to open it).
The simplest way to deal with Mark Purayah Jr
. is to stand behind his chair and wait
for him to sit down with his diamonds in the suitcase and then, well, you know what. Whatever you decide, his
body can remain where it is. Now it's Angelina time, well, it will be once you
steal those Diamonds from off the desk. Angelina Mason
will kindly keep you informed
of her intended location via Raymond's Walkie-Talkie, so it's really just a
case of getting there before she does and lying in wait.
If the place is too crowded or it looks too tricky to make a silent kill, wait
until she moves somewhere that suits you. I find that the eastern courtyard
(the one with the four entrances) is ideal, as you can take her hostage and
drag her into the nearby building (she passes this way when heading to Latin
Fever (just watch for the patrolling Policeman). With Angelina Mason down, you may
as well take her SLP.40.S
before recollecting your thoughts and the Diamonds.
Go and grab your suit from the bar before heading for the exit.
