Description


A SHERLOCK HOLMES SUPERNATURAL ADVENTURE

The Hound of the Baskervilles is the third of four crime novels written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle featuring detective Sherlock Holmes and his companion Dr. Watson.

When Sir Charles Baskerville is found dead, his face distorted with shock and horror, Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson are faced with a sinister and difficult puzzle. A fearsome creature stalks the wild and barren hills of Dartmoor in Devon in England's West Country. Is it a demon from the spirit world? Will it defeat their skill and courage? Who is the tall, mysterious figure seen lurking on the moor at night?

The story is inspired by the legend of a horrifying hound of supernatural origin which was said to persecute all members of the Baskerville family from generation to generation. Can Holmes save the new owner of Baskerville Hall from the ancient family curse or will the hound claim yet another victim?

Sir Arthur Ignatius Conan Doyle (1859 -1930) was a British writer and physician. He created the character Sherlock Holmes in 1887 for A Study in Scarlet, the first of four novels and fifty-six short stories about Holmes and Dr. Watson. The Sherlock Holmes stories are milestones in the field of crime fiction. Doyle was a prolific writer and his other works included fantasy and science fiction stories, plays, romances, poetry, non-fiction, and historical novels. In order to deflect publishers' demands for more Holmes stories, he raised his price intending to discourage them, but found they were willing to pay even the large sums he asked. As a result, he became one of the best-paid authors of his time.
