Birlstone Manor is the place where Mr Douglas — the man who was supposedly murdered, lived in the story. He had rushed down to find Douglas lying in the centre of the room nearest the front door of the house, a sawed-off shotgun lying across his chest. Barker had rushed to the village police station and notified Sergeant Wilson, who was in charge of the station. It exists because of the efforts of hundreds of volunteers and donations from people in all walks of life. Douglas gives Dr Watson a bundle of papers which tells the next part of story; The Scowrers. And Holmes has figured that out.

The arrest makes him still more popular with the Scowrers but still less with Ettie's father, though she still loves him and McMurdo promises her that in 6 months everything will be alright, though he cannot tell her how. Douglas and Barker made it seem that Douglas was dead in the hope of avoiding further attempts on Douglas's life. The idea of solving a mystery and then telling us the story behind the crime is rarely a good writing method.
