] ] There's a mystery story by Allingham where our hero fools the bad guys by pretending he has a toothache and muffling his head in a cloth (apparently a standard way of coping)--except it's not him under all that swaddling, it's a double!
] I have been trying to figure out which one of the novels this is in, but some of my set is in Milwaukee, and I can't find it! AARRGGHH!!
The novel is =Mystery Mile=, wherein Campion tangles with the sinister Simister gang. The exchange for the double is made in the chemist shop that Campion bribes his escort to take him to after his interview with Simister.
