Some good moments from Peter Cheyney’s Dark Bahama:
He had another look at the corpse. He thought it was rather a pity that a young man with such a long, slender, straight body should meet such a sticky end–literally sticky. Then he went back to the drinks wagon and poured himself another brandy and soda. He sat down in the armchair and waited. He thought it was nice that the drinks were free.
