    Default bad clams

    Hi,

    Anyone can help me explain the bold text:

    He killed his first man at 22, and though it had been unplanned -- bad clams had sent the mark home early from the ballet -- he had no aversion to stealing a life. Particualarly if there was a good profit in it.

    tks :D

    "bad clams had sent the mark home early from the ballet"

    (This is just a guess.)
    Indigestion had sent the target home early from the ballet. Maybe the victim arrived unexpectedly and caught him red-handed.

    Does this fit in with the rest of the story?

    :wink:
