He had thick lips, a flat-tipped nose and oily black hair. His skin was blue, the rich, theatrical blue death sometimes puts on. His eyes wer« closed. One corner of his mouth was twisted down complainingly, but otherwise his face was startlingly placid. There was a messy hole in the upper right part of his forehead. It was a while before I discovered that this was the exit hole; he'd been shot in the back of the head. The weapon had been so close, it had singed the hair. I got down on my knees. I moved his legs a little so I could get into his pockets. The suit was » fine silky woo). 1 found nothing n the pockets. I looked inside the jacket The label had heen cut away. Even his belt was gone 1 the buckle probably had had ini- lals. All I could tell from it was that he man had paid good money (or his clothes and had liked them lashy. He didn't look like the kind of customer we usually eot at High Hill. I didn't think ther« was any special reason why he had oeen dumped on our grounds His friends had probably looked or any out-of-lhe-way ipot. I had nee followed the dirt road across he bridge and about 200 yards ito Grandview Manor, and had oliced an old road there leading rom the main highway. My gues« was that the body had come by lat route. • • • WENT back to where I had left Midge and got her tip on my ack again. "What do you think?" he said as I started off. "I think the copj .re going to ave a headache." , "It couldn't have been suicMe, could it?" she said, acting » if he were used to carrying on con- crsations from men's backs. Suicides have a habit ot shoot- themselves in the temple," i aid. Of course, it's possible thli shot himself in the'back of he head—shot himself and then overed himself with dirt before e died.
