First printed in the Strand Magazine in July 1904 and in Collier’s in Oct. 1904.
Stanley Hopkins, a young detective, turns to Holmes in hopes of solving the case regarding the death of a young secretary, Willoughby Smith.
A scream…a heavy thud…a body discovered by the maid. What could the man’s final words mean? “The professor – it was she.” Who is the owner of the golden pince-nez found clutched in the young man’s hand?
What was the significance of the excessive cigarette smoking and dropping ashes on the floor?
With a “…prescription of hot water and lemon…” please join the Stormy Petrels as they discuss this adventure of betrayal, revenge, theft, murder and Russian Nihilists.
