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.

Doesn't something similar happen in EIGHT MILLION WAYS TO DIE?
