First at the scene

McCarthy tugged the black leather coat to one side to reveal the handle of a knife jammed between lower ribs.

‘I suspect this might be the source of all the blood.’

‘You reckon?’ Polanski said.  ‘Do you think it killed him as well?’

‘Part of a set. Someone’s going to be pissed to find it missing.’

‘Not as pissed as Dead Guy.’

‘Small wound like that, could have taped it up.’

‘Right, with sellotape.’

‘More like duct-tape.  There’s nothing you can’t fix with duct-tape.’

‘Shame he didn’t have any.’

‘Yeah, it would be a lot less paperwork.  Call it in.’

A drabble is a story of exactly 100 words.

Rob - I like the dark humour here. A solid way to protect oneself from what one sees in this business...
