So, I found myself using Jenny in the Essex County Express, and she had both Newspaper (https://arkhamdb.com/card/02155) and Burglary (https://arkhamdb.com/card/01045) in play.

Slight spoilers if you don't want to know about the new cards:

Newspaper - You get +2 Intellect while investigating if you have no clues.


Burglary says:

Quote:
Exhaust Burglary: Investigate. If you succeed, instead of discovering clues, gain 3 resources.


Does Newspaper apply to Burglary?

I played it that way, as that that seems to be the literal interpretation of the cards - but I don't see why having a Newspaper and being clueless would help me rob a train carriage. I didn't see anything that would suggest that they shouldn't interact like this, though.

This actually proved a really useful card for this scenario, as you keep clearing clues from your investigators at the end of every agenda.

Yes, that appears to be a legal card interaction.

Clearly, Jenny spotted a note in the Society column (the only part of the newspaper she reads)about a recent wedding, recognized the groom as an unspeakable cad who had once proposed to her (the very idea!), and took the opportunity to go through his luggage in the Honeymoon Berth and retrieve a keepsake of Jenny's that he had never returned while the happy couple were having eggs.
