the last book I ever read A Rage in Harlem: A Harlem Detectives Novel by Chester Himes, excerpt eleven)

from A Rage in Harlem (Harlem Detectives Series Book 1) by Chester Himes:

The hearse ran into crates of iced fish spread out on the sidewalk, skidded with a heavy lurch, and veered against the side of the refrigerator truck. The back doors were flung wide and the throat-cut corpse came one-third out. The gory head hung down from the cut throat to stare at the scene of devastation from its unblinking white-walled eyes.

Exclamations in seven languages were heard.
