The Problem of Thor Bridge Summary – Book Review
Neil Gibson, former Senator and known as “Gold King”, requests Holmes to investigate his wife’s killing to clear his children’s tutor, Grace Dunbar, of being accused.
Sherlock finds out that Mr. Gibson’s marriage was an unhappy relationship and that he mistreated his wife, with which he had nothing in common
Attracted to Miss Dunbar and not being able to marry her, he had ventured into trying and please her with benevolent gestures towards helping less fortunate people.
Holmes would never let discrepancies pass unnoticed:
What was that strange chip found there? Why did Mrs. Gibson clutch an incriminating note just as she was dying? What about finding a matching pistol?
Holmes uses his deductive skills to investigate and try to solve this crime. As if he were a playwright, Sherlock stages a logical murder sequence of events and reconstructs all events, using Watson’s revolver and bringing up conclusions that only he could come up with.
