The Hound of the Baskervilles, by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, is an excellent mystery. Sherlock Holmes and his trustworthy friend, Dr. Watson, are faced with an appalling murder. A legendary hound known to have haunted the Baskerville family for generations is the prime suspect! Holmes denies that such a supernatural thing could happen, but peasants living near the scene of the crime claim to have seen an enormous hound with blazing eyes. Has the legendary hound genuinely materialized from the dark shadows. Or is it a clever trick from a foe that is almost Holmes's equal?
This book is another astonishing Sherlock Holmes mystery that will take any reader aback. It is a book for mystery readers in for a scare.
