* TheAlibi: Deliberately invoked by [[spoiler:one of the killers. Neal uses Berti's killings, which happened before Neal came to Italy, to throw suspicion off himself as he plans the murders of Berti, his agent, his wife, and his secretary. He advises the police that, in his opinion, all of these killings are being committed by the same person -- and since he wasn't in the country yet, that rules ''him'' out, right?]]
