The Hound of the Baskervilles

by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle


Could the sudden death of Baskerville have been caused by the gigantic ghostly hound that is said to have haunted his family for generations? Arch-rationalist Sherlock Holmes characteristically dismisses the theory as nonsense. And, immersed in another case, he sends Dr. Watson to Devon to protect the Baskerville heir and observe the suspects at close hand.

“There's a light in a woman's eyes that speaks louder than words.”

Arthur Conan Doyle, The Hound of the Baskervilles
