#28: The Red Thumb Mark by R. Austin Freeman, Part 4

The story strides on towards court, as Thorndyke gets another little present from his ingenious friend and Jervis learns some startling information. We also learn about Thorndyke's rather disturbing hobby. Further, Freeman does his best to harrow every mystery fan's soul with his blunt description of the Old Bailey at his time of writing. You begin to understand the Victorian obsession with strong soap and elbow grease.

If you can't stand the wait until next week, you can read The Red Thumb Mark on Gutenberg.
