1. An indirect or deceptive device or stratagem

Now Jimmie, we need to raid your linen closet. I need blankets, I need comforters, I need quilts, I need bedspreads. The thicker the better, the darker the better. No whites, can’t use ’em. We need to camouflage the interior of the car. We’re gonna line the front seat and the backseat and the floor boards with quilts and blankets. If a cop stops us and starts stickin’ his big snout in the car, the subterfuge won’t last. But at a glance, the car will appear to be normal. Jimmie – lead the way, boys – get to work.
