Holmes and I had taken the express to Oxford at the invitation of an Inspector Lewis. A plainspoken Northerner, he seemed unintimidated by my colleague's dismissive attitude.
"They told me he was eccentric," he confided, his eyes fixed on my friend, who was rummaging through a pile of apparent rubbish with the assistance of a tall, pale sergeant. "But if he can help me find the lunatic who's doing this he can be as rude as he likes."
Holmes gave a shout; the sergeant let out an oath. Both grimy faces wore identical expressions of triumph.
"We've got him, Sir!"
