Mea culpa


This is my original puzzle which I created more than a year ago and clearly forgot the constrains imposed by myself.
Having noted that none of   lists includes words starting with the last letter of the 15-letter word I wrongly suspected a big in the solver's program.
The low quantity of words was another factor leading to my unjustified conclusion.
Thanks DM for your explanation and sincere excuses to Charlie the innocent suspect.
