Hmmmmm..."The night is hidden in his name."Okay, let's see what kind of detective Sherlock Stranger is.The night is hidden when the sun comes up, and it is day. Sun + day.Billy Sunday?
No sir, 'tis not Sunday, even though it is Sunday (on the calendar).I like the way you twisted the clue around though. Which goes to prove, a false premise will result in a false solution.There is another direction the clue is going.Keep up the analytical thinking and keep on guessing.
I have to add...even though, you were wrong, your guess has been the best guess so far.One more clue: Another man, with the same name, had an older sister who was in a red river while she wore a yellow ribbon.
That would be Peter Marshall who served as Chaplain of the United States Senate. A movie was made about him in 1955 titled, A Man Called Peter.I got the second clue, but not the first.
I got the second clue thanks to Google, but I'm still not getting the first clue...
Peter Marshall is correct!The answer to the first clue is in his initials. (P.M.)
I just don't get it. That kind of logic always worked for Sherlock Holmes.
Peter Marshall! I loved him on Hollywood Squares.
Great clue, Eddie. Now I see why Stranger's Sherlock Homes logic didn't work. Your clue was an August Dupin "hide-it-in-plain-sight" clue.
