947A lovely quote from Inspector French’s Greatest Case, by Freeman Wills Crofts.

‘When Mrs. French called her husband by the name of the companion of the great Holmes, it signified two things, first, than she was in what he always referred to as “a good twist,” and secondly, that she felt pleasantly superior, having seen something –which he has missed. He was therefore always delighted when a conversation reached this stage, believing that something helpful was about to materialise.’
