Book 9: The Body Politic
Part II: Royal Flush


Yomingan Guard:Why do you need to see the body?
Elf:Don't be ridiculous.
Elf:We can watch that casket all day, but we're not guarding the body unless we know the body is in the casket.
Elf:The shell game is the oldest con in the galaxy. The mark watches the shells, but the bean under the shells gets swapped out.
Elf:In order to steal the body, the first trick is to convince everyone that it's still in the casket.
Elf:At least that's how I'd do it.
Schlock:I thought your plan was the smash-and-grab.
