Ok... here goes. The book is Raymond Chandler's The Big Sleep, which I picked up at a local book store because I realized I'd never read any of his books, and I was thinking about detective stories.
"His wife says he never made a nickel off of old man Sternwood except room and board and a Packard one-twenty his wife gave him. Tie that for an ex-legger in the rich gravy."
"It beats me," I said.
Don't know who else to tag, so... anyone who reads this, give it a shot!
