Means, motive, opportunity, and a confession. That generally works in any court in the land.

************** So generous of Brigid to add the confession to the list. Similar to the cozies, where in the final drawing room scene, a hodge-podge of circumstantial evidence that might never lead to a conviction evokes a spontaneous confession which tidily wraps it up.

If I recall correctly, Spade himself had the means, motive, and opportunity.
