Trivia Question

Arthur Conan Doyle's master detective Sherlock Holmes, when needing to retrieve a piece of evidence or another item from the confines of another person's apartment, sometimes contrives to visit the person in question, and then creates a diversion in order to get a hold of the item or exchange it for something else by a slight of hand. (See, e.g., A Scandal in Bohemia and, for an application of the reverse method -- a slight of hand to replace something -- the "Return of Sherlock Holmes" story "The Second Stain.")

In which of the following stories does another fictional detective (NOT: a murderer or murder suspect) use a similar method to retrieve a vital piece of evidence?

Choose the correct answer:

Murder on the Links (Agatha Christie -- Hercule Poirot) The Purloined Letter (Edgar Allan Poe -- Auguste Dupin) Strong Poison (Dorothy L. Sayers -- Lord Peter Wimsey, Miss Climpson and Miss Murchison) Hand in Glove (Ngaio Marsh -- Roderick Alleyn)
