The Hound of the Baskervilles (Sherlock Holmes)

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The greatest detective of them all is back. 'Never in the delirious dream of a disordered brain could anything more savage, more appalling, more hellish be conceived than that dark form and savage face.' Death by natural causes? Sherlock Holmes knows that Sir Charles Baskerville's demise was due to no such thing. Was he killed by a phantom hound or is this the work of a calculating murderer?

Synopsis:

Eerie illustrations enhance a blood-curdling edition of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's most-celebrated Sherlock Holmes mystery, bringing its delicious shivers to a new generation of readers.

Is it true that a hellish hound is haunting the lonely moors, hunting down the hapless Baskervilles through the generations? If anyone can put this chilling legend to rest, it's Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson. It seems the body of the latest owner of the Baskerville estate has just been discovered in a ghastly condition, and Holmes has been called in on the case none too soon. The howls and moans that punctuate the elaborate twists of this Gothic tale will raise the hair on readers' necks and make converts of any who are not already fans of the famed detective. This classic mystery novel is presented in an unabridged edition, lavishly illustrated with the atmospheric and stylish artwork of Pam Smy.

About the Author

Arthur Conan Doyle (1859-1930) introduced Sherlock Holmes in his first novel A Study in Scarlet. In 1893 Conan Doyle published "The Final Problem" in which he killed off his famous detective so that he could turn his attention more towards historical fiction. However Holmes was so popular that Conan Doyle eventually relented and published The Hound of the Baskervilles in 1901. The events of the The Hound of the Baskervilles are set before those of "The Final Problem," but in 1903 new Sherlock Holmes stories began to appear that revealed that the detective had not died after all.
