I believe Lawrence Block's who's-been-murdered-in-my-bed entry was "After the First Death", which iBooks have just reprinted for those of us yet to read it. Gil Brewer provides a variation on the unknown dead woman theme when the protagonist of "Play It Hard" wakes up in bed with an unknown live woman, who claims to be his wife.
