Quandary Resolution 5418
ruck, cacophonous, writhe, delitescent
Returning to the station house, Detective Inspector Malroy reviewed the morning's work: he had writhed and pushed his way through a cacophonous ruck to locate the stabbing victim who lay cold and exsanguinated in his own parka--just another unremarkable statistic of urban violence --except, it kept haunting him, for the the distinctive murder of crows which had swirled overhead like a black whirlpool, and focusing on this image he began to wonder whether the crows and the victim were somehow connected to the bizarre incident which recently occurred at the Gothic mansion.
