Italo Italophiles I suspect that the drunk and violent path the son of the murdered man took after case was over, meant that he had perhaps killed his father and blamed it on the bridel maker. There was that suggestion, that he took advantage of the blow the b-maker gave to his father, to finish the old man off, so he could inherit everything sooner.
Betty I never felt that the father was innocent. The fact that he was guilty didn't seem to matter to the killer's mindset.
Amber I don't think there was a final conclusion about this in the book (unless you meant this as the beginning of a debate about what readers thought).
