The Problem of Thor Bridge Summary – Book Review

Neil Gibson, former Senator and known as “Gold King”, requests Holmes to investigate the killing of his wife 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 in the assassination scenario pass unnoticed:

What was the strange chip found at the crime scene? Why did Mrs. Gibson clutch an incriminating note in the very moment of her death? Were should the matching pistol be?

Holmes uses his deductive skills to investigate and try to solve the crime. As if he were a playwright, Sherlock stages the murder sequence of events and reconstructs the crime, using Watson’s revolver and bringing up conclusions that only he could come up with.

 

Excellent plot, I recommend this book to adults, teenagers, and mature kids that appreciate a well-written mystery short story.

Conan Doyle is a must-read for everyone, even, if only, as a cultural asset.
