IN THE MORGUE
aka The Dimple
by Dashiell Hammett

A generation or so ago, when this story was first published, an author was not permitted to refer in print to a woman's legs—they had to be called “limbs”; even the phrase “a devil in her eye” was subject to bowdlerizing (our authority: the late Gelett Burgess); and when a male character brought a female character home after a society ball or a middle-class movie, the author did not dare end the scene at the door with three dots (…)—they implied too much! But, as always, Dashiell Hammett skirted even the most prudish of editorial taboos.
