There are a few possibilities for "detective story clues" in this case. Those are elements of the crime which, for example, go beyond the necessities of staging (the elaborate knot in the "garotte") or actually work against the story told by the staging (the $118,000 ransom demand). The ransom demand is the only indisputable detective story clue in my mind because it cannot be a product of a mistake, coincidence, habit or lie. It was a conscious choice, one that telegraphed that the kidnapping was fake. The fact that there is one ds clue suggests there are others.
Here's my list. Anybody have others?
The $118,000.00 ransom demand.
The "macrame" knot around the paintbrush.
Fibers from John's wool shirt in her underwear.
John's robe on the floor of the third-floor study.
The folded dictionary page pointing to "incest."
The chair in front of the train room door.
(Here's hoping topix doesn't mess up the formatting and run everything together.)
