suspense story in english
It is perhaps the most famous of Sherlock Holmes’s cases, because of its diabolic plot about a stepfather preventing his twin daughters from marrying and thereby diminishing his income from his deceased wife’s estate ,Watson opens the story with the information that has been freed to tell this story by the premature death of the client, Helen Stoner . She comes to Holmes and Watson terrified that she may meet the same fate as her sister, who died mysteriously two years earlier She recounts the reason for her fears .she has heard a low whistle in the night, just as her sister did on several nights before her death. Her sister died soon after her engagement to marry .and now Helen was also engaged to marry. Her stepfather Dr. Roylottis was well known as a violent and temperamental giant who brooks no interference with his will. His wife died in a railway accident. He then retired with his stepdaughters into virtual seclusion at Stoke Moran, collecting exotic animals which he allows to roam free on his grounds. He also associates with a band of gypsies. After going through these details, his life seems rather silly Holmes has to develop two theories to explain the death though he claims to have at least seven .The theory was why there are no signs of violence on her body and why her mysterious last words to Helen about a speckled band. Holmes finds several discoveries, such as the small opening at the ceiling between the woman;’s room and Dr. Roylott’s room, that the bell rope that hangs down onto the bed is not functional and the bed is fastened to the floor and cannot be shifted. One night, Watson and the detective spend in the dark room waiting for something to happen. Then the speckled band appears and reveals itself to be a poisonous snake Holmes now aware of what was supposed to happen, drives the snake back upon the doctor, catching the murderer in his trap. A client gives the detective the unconnected clues that create a mystery. This story also deals with Doyle’s typical theme. Often, his client turns out to be a young woman who is, in some way, the victim of a dominant male a relative, an employer As is often the case, the motive here is to obtain money and property. This story underlines Holmes wisdom Holmes is willing to listen to the problems of a nervous young woman .when even her future husband responds: only with “soothing answers and averted eyes. Holmes lacks to trace insight into emotion beyond the common motives for the crime. Perhaps this apparent contradiction may be explained by Watson ‘s assertion at the opening of the story that Holmes rapid deductions were swift as Intuition” suggesting that his logic is so beautiful an art that it may look like Intuition or many mimic deep insight into the wickedness of the human heart Roylott push the snake through the ventilator to kill his daughters . He knew the snake’s poison would be untraceable. So he wouldn’t be suspected of murder When holmes attacked the snake on the bell pull, it went back through the ventilator and bit Roylott instead.
