Publisher Description

The terrible spectacle of the beast, the fog of the moor, the discovery of a body, this classic horror story pits detective against dog. When Sir Charles Baskerville is found dead on the wild Devon moorland with the footprints of a giant hound nearby, the blame is placed on a family curse. It is left to Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson to solve the mystery of the legend of the phantom hound before Sir Charles' heir comes to an equally gruesome end.

Still fantastic

If you've never read a Sherlock Holmes story before, this is a great choice to begin with. By the end you will realise why SH stories are still so popular and loved by hard core fans and new comers alike. Mystery, suspense, action,humour, romance...it's all there. It's never dull and not overly long. This will have you reading to the very last word to find out who,how and why. And it's free!!! Don't let the fact it was written over 100 years ago put you off.

One to read

I loved the whole story, well written and very atmospheric throughout. I have read the book now and watched the films from Basil Rathbone to Benedict Cumberbatch. All of them had a different twist on the character of Holmes but the main plot of the story remains the same.

The only thing I didn’t like about the book was the summary of the whole case at the end. After reading the book, I fully understood why certain things happened the way they had.

Apart from that, very enjoyable and will certainly be reading more of Sherlocks exploits.

Classic crime thriller

I love all the Sherlock Holmes stories but this one is a special classic that can be read time and again.
