It's definitely advisable to check the corpse's wig (I know I always do). Especially when the victim seems to be an over-the-hill Bay City Roller.

And so over-the-hill that he needs to have it stamped inside his rug so he doesn't forget which group he's in.

Boy, that Chandler could sure dream 'em up, couldn't he.

Chandler had a knack for quirky situations, especially considering the times in which he wrote. Perverted bibliophiles, dykes and doubloons - boy oh boy, LA was a kinky place.
