Peine Forte et Dure

Filed under: Uncategorized — Matilda @ 1:19 pm

We have added a new Trifling Monograph, titled Peine Forte et Dure. The article explains and provides some of the history behind the term used by Watson in The Valley of Fear (VALL). Kings and Popes, Blond Bombshells, the US Constitution, nasty elephants, and even another of Holmes’ clients are somehow involved.
