    Werner wins this round. Nicely done!

    I still think my solution was valid … it is possible to have more than one clue in a case!
    Not that I’m a sore loser or anything!

    Makes less sense than just saying the rain would have washed away the tracks. Also agree that the wind can change – so the simplest solution is not allways the right one.

    Besides— the sci-fi author was trying too hard. The last panel before the inspector turned on him would have been proof enough of that. Now, I wonder “for sure” how it was done? Wrenches for the “footprints”? A plate pressed into the ground for the “landing gear”? A child in a costume for the “alien”? The hardest part is the window— it’s not easy burning a hole in the window without shattering it.

    What the wind doesn’t change directions during storms in your world?

    Would be nice if Danger would explain the holes, footprints and tracks from the spaceship. So far all he has is a picture that shows rain coming from a different direction which is purely circomstantial . . . What are the facts?!? . . . ☻

    Got it right from day one, word by word. How’s that?

    Very cheap. The wind often shifts during storms. Totally implausible solution.

    Hey! Not so fast there, speedy! I’ve already stated that I am an undocumented space alien.

    Note: I said earlier the footprints look like an open-ended wrench. Nope, I was wrong. Take the rubber-bands off of a sling shot, and there you go.

    The good thing about this solution is this: very often, the clue is something that the murderer did or didn’t do that makes no sense. It leaves the reader saying “yeah, I get that this thing proves that Mr. X is the murderer – but why the hell did he do that in the first place?”
    Here, the SciFi author went to a lot of trouble to create all the evidence that an alien has tried to kill him. He failed because of the only thing he couldn’t control.
    Again, nicely done this time.
