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.
