Early web-based "detective" game based on logic puzzles.

In the early years of the web, there was a site that consisted of logic puzzles written in the form of detective fiction. It was mostly text-based, but had simple diagrams for street maps and the like. The puzzles, at their heart, were all of the "Mr. Brown is left-handed, the victim was stabbed by a right-handed assailant, therefore Mr. Brown is not the killer" type. The puzzles changed regularly, there were ongoing stories, and I think one could subscribe for more features, including upgrading one's skills and accessing different areas of the "city" where the game was set.
Does anyone remember what this website was called?
Alternatively, can anyone recommend a good site that features these sorts of logic puzzles, especially ones embedded in a larger story?
