How crazy are those Veronians ?
Leacock is stonned… He wanted so much to discover European
A dead body is found on the Adige docks. The
detective Tarchinini has all his time : he discuss with one
man, drinks a couple of liquors with another… and finally
decides to go to see the coroner !
Then, when he sees the body, what does he do ?
He asks a few question to the dead ! No methods, and not
any serious behaviour. And love… love… does Tarchinini
talks about something else ?
Because, of course, if the man lying down on
the operating table commited suicide, it’s because of a
woman ! Why would you look any further ? But Leacock
can’t understant that…
Poor man… he’s American !
