‘They all agreed that it was a huge creature, luminous, ghastly and spectral.’

Originally serialised in The Strand Magazine, Conan Doyle’s The Hound of the Baskervilles follows the infamous Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson as they investigate the mysterious death of Sir Charles Baskerville, whose dead body is found on the misty and desolate Devon moors.

The locals blame his death on the legend of the ghastly phantom hound that they claim has haunted the Baskerville family for generations. When the heir to the Baskerville fortune, Sir Henry, also comes under threat, Holmes’ detective skills are put to the test as he battles to discover the truth behind the legend, and to solve one of the most macabre mysteries of his career.

    Comments about The Hound Of The Baskervilles:

    Sir Conan Doyle uses his Holmes and Watson characters [based on the real father of forensic medicine]to cast aside superstition and get to the facts.
    His style flows and reads easily whilst keeping you on the edge of your seat. You may have seen most of the modern screen adaptions but you will still enjoy reading the original.
    Good for younger readers to develop their understanding of logic.
