Quote #4

A shriek had been heard by a neighbour during the night; suspicion of foul play had been aroused. (8)

Would you call the police over one shriek? Would it alone be enough to get the police thinking foul play? We wonder what the neighbors and the police know that the narrator doesn't tell us.
