Inquisitor 1761 Single Parent by Chalicea

August 2, 2022

The run of easier Inquisitors continues with the always light and fluffy but invariably entertaining Chalicea. In today’s case much of the solving time was spent trying to work out what had happened to two members of a fictional family in a book I have not read. TIED TO A TREE and EATEN BY ANTS being the intriguing answers, from A HUNDRED YEARS of Solitude (or SOLEDAD in the original language thanks to the misprints).

The author I’m guessing you knew. If you didn’t, you should have. 😉

Misprints would lead to a little agonising over whether “Chase” (leading to SIC) was actually one, but it is, of course, the kind of sic associated with setting a dog on the sort of miscreants who try to start grass fires in the middle of a heatwave. I have the evidence on camera, though thankfully we were not forced to endure the scenes seen down London way.

And thankfully the heat has passed to give way to some good, British drizzle.

And the usual mid-summer exhaustion, so I was thankful today for something a little light and fluffy and, yes, fun.
