Hound of the Baskervilles (Paperback)
Email or call for price.
Sherlock Holmes, legendarily-if fictionally-the world's first consulting detective, returns for his third novel-length adventure in this 1902 work, originally serialized in the Strand Magazine from August 1901 to April 1902. When Holmes and his sidekick and biographer Dr. Watson are called to Dartmoor, in the English countryside, to investigate the strange circumstances surrounding the death of Sir Charles Baskerville, they find much more than merely one mysteriously dead body. A curse bedevils the entire Baskerville family, and now hangs over the head of Sir Charles's heir, Sir Henry. And then there's that hellish beast of a hound that is haunting the moor... Scottish surgeon and political activist SIR ARTHUR CONAN DOYLE (1859-1930) turned his passions into stories and novels, producing fiction and nonfiction works sometimes controversial (The Great Boer War, 1900), sometimes fanciful (The Coming of the Fairies, 1922), and sometimes legendary (The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, 1892).
