Murder Most Foul  by Larner
Faced with a restrained plea from a woman of Anórien to send someone to investigate the trial that has left her son condemned to hang and two other youths to spend the remainder of their lives in hard labor, the new King of Gondor sends a deputation to investigate the murders of three small boys to find out just how many lives were destroyed two days before Midsummer the preceding year. Written for the Big Bang Challenge.
