Description
 
Players take on the role of an iconic detective to solve the biggest caper of the decade! The culprit is clever, but for the sharp-minded and keen observer, there's no such thing as the perfect crime, and every criminal leaves a trail of clues to follow, no matter how small or well-covered. Follow these clues across the seedy streets of 19th century London, but be alert; the best detectives are rarely led astray! With witnesses to interview, get-away routes to trace and a bevy of clues to sift through, only the finest detective will be able to track down the culprits in order to return the stolen treasures to their rightful locations. This game for 2-5 players ages 8 and up, plays in 20 minutes. Challenge your friends and family in a race across London to determine the sharpest sleuth of the bunch! GRYPHON BOOKSHELF SERIES #7

Another Knizia entry in the bookshelf series May 31, 2012
Reviewer: EndersGame from BGG  
In Looting London, players are detectives trying to catch a thief in London who has made off with five rare treasures like the crown jewels. The mechanics are Ticket-to-Ride-like: draw and collect cards or play sets of cards to claim point scoring evidence tiles. There are also some typical Knizia scoring twists that add tension and fun to the game, particularly the notion that tiles of one of the five cases scores zero points at the end of the game.

It's probably best with 2 or 3, and the thin theme won't bother those who appreciate the solid components and the clever scoring that Knizia can offer.  A decent filler with some interesting gameplay.
