unearths some literary gems.
From "The Return of Lord Kingwood," by Ivans (trans. Josh Pachter):
Mr. Monk then ferreted a number of newspaper clippings and other papers out from an assortment of nooks and crannies.... How the little man managed to locate them so quickly, after they had spent years tucked away and forgotten, was impossible to explain. But it was generally acknowledged that there were certain secret passages through the wilderness of documents strewn both within and without the office's many cabinets, passages that were known only to Mr. Monk, passages that invariably led him directly to whatever information he sought.
