I think it's funny that you mention "cheat" because the Rum Arc started with Agasa's "trick" that turns out to be cheating.
Some time ago I began to believe that none of the "suspects" that Gosho threw at us was really Rum.
If you think about it before the Rum arc was the Bourbon arc which already was written with "three suspects" and one real BO members between them. Storywise it wouldn't really make sense to do the exact same thing once again and I wonder if Gosho was just lazy (since the "three suspects, one culprit formula" is used really often in DC... and was used in the Bourbon arc as well) or if it was some kind of trick... and more and more I'm convinced that it's in fact the second option.
If Gosho give us three suspects again it's because after the long Bourbon arc which followed this pattern, we would assume the BO member would really be between the three of them. It can really be a narrative trick aimed at the readers. The cheat used by Agasa in the first chapter of this new arc could really be some sort of clue about this trick by the way : Agasa cheated by presenting only cups filled with vinegars and by making the kids believe that one of them was orange juice. The same way Gosho gave us only suspects which aren't in fact Rum but try to make the readers think that one of them is the real deal.
For me it would make sense that Rum is a character not really in the spotlight and not considered as a suspect. Maybe he haven't even appear yet.
But I'm not convinced by the three suspects. At all.
