“A body suddenly crashed through a plate glass window at the Brigadier’s house.”

It was the Brigadier! He succumbed to injuries and died.

The Brigadier had three sons.

His eldest son said that their father had committed suicide.

The second son also sided with his elder brother. They both seemed giddy.

The youngest was sure that it was murder.

In the absence of a will, the two older sons passed lewd remarks and conspired to divide the property.

It was decided that the eldest son would get the Brigadier's palatial home.

The second son would get the posh city apartment-building, the Brigadier owned, in York.

The youngest son knew that his two elder brothers considered themselves to be King & Jack respectively in a pack of playing-cards, while they mocked him as the Joker. There was no justice...
Needless to say, it was an unfair division of property...

But, the game of life had other plans.

That plot of land had rich Uranium deposits.

The Joker laughed all the way to the bank to deposit his multi-millions!
