Sir Manuel Carmargue, one of the greatest flautists of his time, was dead. Misadventure. An old man, ankle-deep in snow, he lost his foothold in the dark, slipping into the water to be trapped under a lid of ice. Only a glove remained to point to where he lay, one of its fingers rising out of the drifts. There's nothing Chief Inspector Wexford likes better than an open-and-shut case. They're so restful. And yet there are one or two niggling doubts - and the disturbing return of Carmargue's daughter, now a considerable heiress, after an absence of nineteen years. Is Wexford going to listen to that nagging inner voice of his? And if he does, what exactly does he plan to do?

An elderly man takes his dog out for a walk round the garden before going to bed. The next day he is found dead, drowned in the pond. Accident or murder?

I did notice some clues and realise their significance but still didn't manage to get all the way there.

I spent far too long staring at this wondering what a dem-ist-er was before it clicked. 🙄 😳

dabbe My husband and I play the NYT Spelling Bee every day (we split it). He asked me yesterday, “What is this word deice that you came up with? (he spoke it as DEES).

My answer: “It's deice as in DEE-ICE.“

Silence. Then lots of laughter by both of us. We feel your pain!
