Re your comment below:

" . . . 'The Gutting of Couffignal' is something special, with the ending perfectly wrapping up the story."

You and Tim are absolutely right. But you don't go far enough.

"Couffignal" is not merely "something special." It's nothing except the best private eye short story ever written. And by a guy who would, a few years later write the best private eye novel ever written (a novel for which "Couffignal" was, in some respects, particularly the ending, a dry run).
