From the publisher of The Hound of the Baskervilles:
Could the sudden death of Sir Charles 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. With its atmospheric setting on the ancient, wild moorland and its ghostly apparition, The Hound of the Baskervilles is one of the greatest crime novels ever written. Doyle pits rationalism against supernatural, good against evil, as Sherlock Holmes attempts to defeat a foe almost his equal.
