Re: RARA-AVIS: What's a Sam?

Date: 02 Aug 2006

John asked:

"In chapter 16 of Roger Torrey's excellent _42 Days for Murder_, the Crusty Old Landlady asks Our Hero "Are you a Sam?", to which he responds, "No. Private cop."
"So ... what's a Sam?"

Just a guess, but a federal agent, as in Uncle Sam's?
