Fans of Sherlock Holmes' adventures will want to make room in their collection for another of narrator David Timson's adroit performances. In "The Problem of Thor Bridge", Holmes investigates the death of a Brazilian woman, seemingly at the hands of her children's governess. Can Holmes clear the governess' name or is she truly guilty of the crime? Timson's Holmes is perceptive and cool as always, and his scientific detachment is strikingly contrasted with the desperation and fear of the other characters.
This is a story from The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes, Volume I collection.
These six cases are among the last undertaken by Sherlock Holmes before he retired to the Sussex downs. However, the problems facing the sleuth are as diverse and challenging as ever. What with seeking the whereabouts of the stolen Mazarin Diamond, discovering the importance of being called Garrideb, encountering a mysterious murder on Thor Bridge, searching for eternal youth and the threat of a vampire in Sussex, there is no sign of Holmes' deductive powers slowing down.
