Nancy Drew Sleuthing Tip #2

When Nancy finds herself about to be tied up by villain Stumpy Dowd in #3, The Bungalow Mystery, she hold her hands in a particular manner—an old detective trick she read about—in order to be able to slip out of her bonds.

Clever!

Has anyone ever tried the trick to see if it actually works? (I can't recall how clear the description of it was).

@sequesterednooks - no I haven't but I believe that author Penny Warner has people demonstrate this during her ND Guide talks and did so at one of our conventions--I think it was probably at Pasadena and the one in PA. And it seemed to work if I recall.
