AN ABSTRACT CLUE   (genre:crimefiction)

By Neel Anil Panicker

‘You see the lone spire that stands apart among a sea of other similarly spaced out but slightly larger ones, you look at the jagged pointed edges of them all that jut out into the sky and whose images the azure blue yet still born waters capture; they are huge clues, signals that have larger meanings the artist wanted to convey.’

“Pardon me, Professor Alberto Rodrigues, are you telling me that there is a connection between the corpse that was found in the greenhouse and this abstract painting?”

‘All I have offered is my professional psychological interpretation of the painting that was found in the murdered woman’s bedroom, and which, as you mentioned, was sketched by the murdered woman herself barely hours before her death;  now, it is for you, Detective Chacko, to go figure out and hopefully unravel this murder mystery that’s become the talking point of Cochin City.’
