THIS WEEK: The Problem of Thor Bridge
Neil Gibson, the Gold King and former Senator from
"some Western state", approaches Holmes to investigate the murder of
his wife Maria in order to clear his children's governess, Grace Dunbar, of the
crime. It soon emerges that Mr. Gibson's marriage had been unhappy and he
treated his wife very badly. He had fallen in love with her when he met her in Brazil, but
soon realized they had nothing in common. He became attracted to Miss Dunbar;
since he could not marry her, he had attempted to please her in other ways,
such as trying to help people less fortunate than himself.
Maria Gibson was found lying in a pool of blood on ThorBridge
with a bullet through the head and note from the governess, agreeing to a
meeting at that location, in her hand. A recently discharged revolver with one
shot fired is found in Miss Dunbar's wardrobe. Holmes agrees to look at the
situation in spite of the damning evidence.
