First Paragraph

Colonel Jacques Moussac, chef de gendarmerie of Port Afrique, looked down at the dead woman on the floor as his men moved quietly about him in the living room of the big plantation house. They were very quiet, very competent, very anxious not to disturb the colonel's feelings about the woman, until finally one of the men came over to stand beside him.
