Description

The Hound of The Baskervilles 1902 by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle 22 May 1859 - 7 July 1930 Sir Charles Baskerville, baronet, is found dead on the grounds of his country house, Baskerville Hall. The cause is ascribed to a heart attack. Fearing for the safety of Sir Charles's nephew and the only known heir, Sir Henry Baskerville, Dr. James Mortimer travels to London and asks Sherlock Holmes for help in figuring out the case. Mortimer explains that the Baskerville family is afflicted by a curse. According to an old account, said to have been written in 1742 and describing events which had occurred a century earlier still, during the English Civil War, Hugo Baskerville was infatuated with a farmer's daughter. The Hound of the Baskervilles is the third of the four crime novels written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle featuring the detective Sherlock Holmes. It tells the story of an attempted murder inspired by the legend of a diabolical hound of supernatural origin. Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson investigate the case.show more
