When Sir Charles Baskerville is found dead on the moors, a heart attack seems to be the likely cause. However, a certain Dr Mortimer thinks there is more to it than that. Although it seems impossible, he believes that a supernatural hound haunts the moors. His theory suggests that this beast has been on the rampage for years, killing generations of male Baskervilles.
With the heir to the Baskerville estate returning home from Canada, and the mystery still unsolved, Dr Mortimer turns to Sherlock Holmes for help. He is worried that the deaths will continue until all the Baskerville men are dead - or someone discovers the truth.
The unparalleled detective, Sherlock Holmes; his sidekick, Dr Watson; and an intriguing and mysterious plot make Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's The Hound Of The Baskervilles a compelling read.
