Probably one of if not THE best known Sherlock Holmes stories, I have read all of them and I can’t pick out a favorite. I believe this was my first and it got me hooked. In the interest of saving time I am just going to slap an “I recommend this book” on it and post the synopsis from GoodReads. I will say that this was a quick read as the story moves along quickly. Since it was written in 1901 there are old terms, most not explained because of when it was written, the author know his readers would understand. It is not hard to figure out, you just need to keep in mind the time period it was written.
Holmes and Watson are faced with their most terrifying case yet. The legend of the devil-beast that haunts the moors around the Baskerville families home warns the descendants of that ancient clan never to venture out in those dark hours when the power of evil is exalted. Now, the most recent Baskerville, Sir Charles, is dead and the footprints of a giant hound have been found near his body. Will the new heir meet the same fate?
