No. Not that I remember. You'll find something similar at the end of Bride Wore Black as well I'm afraid. It happens with him and it really shows in some of his lesser (as they say) short stories. One of the things I really like about Woolrich is that he could care less about the rules and pulls some amazing stunts on the way to the end of his stories.
