Quandary Resolution 8269
inquiline, confusedly, ersatz, offbeat, n. and adj.

Using the love-nest in which Dr Joseph Goebbels kept his mistress, the famous movie actress Olga Konstantinovna Chekhova, as an ersatz safe house had seemed a tad offbeat – to say the extremely least – to the two Americans, when they first tracked the Bulgarian assassin to his inquiline lair in it's basement – accessed by a near-inaccessible tunnel from a heavily overgrown and natural wilderness of ancient pines and tumbled rocks by the shore of the Wannsee – but even they had to admit that Chernozemsky's – at first impression – artlessly and seemingly confusedly blending of cheese-paring and almost brazenly daring – his ability to hide, no, to become almost completely invisible in plain sight – was the characteristic which they – as espionage officers themselves – could admit to admiring the most (but they could never forgive him for the Gorgonzola and Garlic).
