eBook | $0.99
The Hound of the Baskervilles, which returned Sherlock Holmes to readers eight years after his apparent death at the hands of the evil Professor Moriarty, is often considered the greatest mystery novel in the English language. It became Arthur Conan Doyle’s most famous work and launched an improbable and incredibly successful second act for the world’s greatest detective.
Hound brilliantly embodies the best of the Sherlock Holmes mysteries while also being a first-rate gothic horror story. Set in the haunting, primeval landscape of the moors in the West Country of England, Holmes and Watson must unravel bewildering clues and confront the centuries-old legend of a terrifying spectral black hound in foiling one of the most devilishly ingenious villains they’ll ever face.
This Top Five Classics illustrated edition of The Hound of the Baskervilles includes all 61 illustrations by Sidney Paget from the original Strand serials that appeared from August 1901 to April 1902, an informative introduction, and detailed author bio and selected bibliography.
