1. It really seems strange that Parker didn’t know that his master had been murdered. So, on hearing the news that something is wrong with his master, he followed the doctor to the study.

Read the extract from the book.

«Of course, come along», said I to Parker. We walked through the door on the right, crossed a little lobby where a small flight of stairs led to the bedroom, and knocked at the door of the study. There was no answer. I turned the handle but the door was locked. Parker was standing behind me.»

Pay attention, it is important! The picture may help you.
