Hi guys. I'm trying to understand this term "finagled an introduction." Found it in a book called The Strain (Guillermo Del Toro / Chuck Hogan). Here's the context. [ This had followed three full decades of searching and researching, of exploring that seam where myth and legend met historical reality. Palmer finally tracked down the Ancients themselves, and finagled an introduction. ] I looked up the dictionary and the word finagle alone doesn't make any sense in this context. Then I tried to look up the team "finagled an introduction" which I saw that it has been used elsewhere but couldn't find a definition. I think I understand the general meaning of the whole paragraph but just want to make sure I don't miss out on any connotation the term "finagled an introduction" has to offer. Please help. Thank you very much.
