The Leather Funnel

The second story in the Conan Doyle anthology “Tales of Terror and Mystery” – yuk! The whole story revolves around a funnel used to torture a woman to death (based on the true story of Madame de Brinvilliers). I’m sure that most modern writers would feel the need to go into far more detail about the nature of the artefact but Conan Doyle’s prose is more than enough for me.
