Looks Like a Case for Mike Shayne

Mysterious grand piano found on Biscayne Bay sandbar - Miami-Dade Breaking News - MiamiHerald.com: "A grand piano recently appeared on a sandbar in Biscayne Bay, about 200 yards from the Quayside condominiums off Northeast 107th Street. Whoever put it there placed it at the highest point of the sandbar so that it's not underwater during high tide."

"Has anybody checked to make sure there's not a body hidden inside it?" the big redheaded private detective asked as he frowned and tugged on his earlobe.

"Damn it, Shayne, don't tell me how to do my job," snapped Peter Painter, Miami Beach chief of detectives. He turned to one of the uniformed officers and added quietly, "Go check to see if there's a body in it."

(I can keep this up all day.)

If not for that pesky copyright business, I'd give it some thought.
