Quandary Resolution 5421
ruck, swage, mimesis, skosh
As the swirling crows alighted en masse (or "en murder") on one of the gables, in the Inspector's mind a complex theory of the crime began to emerge from the ruck of confusing facts: The smithy's son and heir to his practice had remained on the neglected estate as a self-appointed caretaker while he pursued his craft, but he was recently threatened with eviction by the property management company, a circumstance which might give him a motive for murder; a theory which would be borne out only if the Inspector could locate a swage with the son's DNA in complete mimesis with DNA on the fabricated Roman dagger--even a skosh variation would kill the case.
