The Assassin's Knot

Clues

There was a red ruby found under the Duke's body. It has a faint aura of divine magic. It may match the rubies in the eyes of the holy symbol of Garotten's high priest.

There was a red leather button clutched in the Duke's hand. It matches a button from Abraham's vest (of the Garotten Inn).

There was a golden lute string found at the scene of the crime. It matches a lute used by the bard Ballmarrow (of the Garotten Globe, a theater).

He logs his inn's guests and their meals in a book. He claims to have been indisposed on the day of the murder. His book lists an "herbal concoction" instead of a meal that day. One of his guests is rumored to have a connection to the assassin's guild, an idea which appeared to concern him.
