    I don't know this for sure, but it would amaze me if he did. He was not one to outline, and it's not like he knew he was about to die.

    That doesn't mean another author couldn't be brought in to finish the book, and any of the ones people have named would have no problem working without an outline. But so little of the book exists that it would really be like writing a book from scratch (not unlike Parker's POODLE SPRINGS, which had only a chapter or two as a starting point).
