M.E.'s journal:

Friday, May 26:
The door opened to admit a man whose eyes peered at the world suspiciously from beneath bushy eyebrows. This was Evelyn Cave - one of the most useful medical men Scotland Yard possessed.
Margery Allingham, writing in The White Cottage Mystery, 1927.

Find a fun Medical Examiner, Coroner, or Morgue quote? Email it to your host for inclusion in the M.E.'s journal!
