Q.1922

What is the missing word in this extract from the Sherlock Holmes story "The Musgrave Ritual":

"Yes, my boy, these were all done prematurely before my biographer had come to glorify me." He (Sherlock) lifted bundle after bundle in a tender, caressing sort of way. "They are not all successes, Watson," said he.

"But there are some pretty little problems among them. Here's the record of the Tarleton murders, and the case of Vamberry, the wine merchant, and the adventure of the old Russian woman, and the singular affair of the aluminium crutch, as well as a full account of Ricoletti of the club-foot, and his _____ wife. And here--ah, now, this really is something a little recherche.
