Rdinary thing; but to me that had never seen blood let in violence except in such matters as a bout of fisticuffs at school it was the biggest thing that had ever happened and I stood staring down at the white face as if I should never. The narrator hears steps coming along the road in the gloom swift sure steps as of a man who walks fast and puts his feet firmly down as with determination to get somewhere as soon as he may The steps are coming from a man who is swiftly leaving the scene of a murder It is midnight and there is nobody else about The man swiftly leaving the scene of a murder is making his way somewhere without losing any time in the business This man also has the two middle fingers missing from his right hand The police ask the narrator if he saw anyone near the site of the murder and the narrator writes To be sure I had seen a stranger and I had observed that he had lost a couple of fingers the first and second of his right hand and it was certainly a ueer thing that he should be in that immediate neighbourhood about the time when this unfortunate man met his death But it had been borne in on my mind pretty strongly that the man I had seen looking at his map was some gentleman tourist who was walking the district and had as like as not been tramping it over Plodden Field and that historic corner of the country and had become benighted ere he could reach wherever his headuarters were And I was not going to bring suspicion on what was in all probability an innocent strangerNO there is NO chance AT ALL that this is an innocent stranger It is IMPOSSIBLE that the reader can believe this I hate Joseph Smith Fletcher for making up such a dumb scenario

    This is the the third of seventeen Fletcher novels in the JS Fletcher anthology The main character Hugh Moneylaws stumbles and bumbles throughout much of the novel the plot is highly improbable and the ending should have been expanded Nevertheless Dead Men's Money is an interesting read and in it's own uniue way uite engrossing
