Quandary Resolution 248
expiate, buttress, littoral, exegesis
When the new detective's exegesis of the cold case documents revealed that the suspect (who had been found buttressing the dead body against the littoral wall of sandbags) was not the murderer, the DA's office immediately filed for his release and offered him a job in a desperate attempt to expiate its guilt.
