Description

On the moors of Devonshire at Baskerville Hall, there is a curse that seems to have killed another victim. Sir Charles Baskerville has been found dead, with a face that shows extreme terror but no signs of violence. Many years ago, Hugo Baskerville was supposedly killed by a beast that looked like a hound with fiery eyes and a dripping mouth. Has this monster come back for Sir Henry Baskerville, the young heir to the estate?
Sherlock Holmes has been called in to protect Sir Henry from the same fate that has befallen his family. As Holmes and Watson begin their investigation, they hear a blood-curdling howl from the foggy Grimpen Mire. This is a sign that the hound of the Baskervilles is about to strike again.
The Hound of the Baskervilles first appeared in The Strand Magazine in 1901. It was published in book form eight months later and was already considered a classic. It is often touted as the best detective story ever written. This thrilling tale of suspense is a must-read for any lover of detective fiction.
