The Hound of the Baskervilles
Arthur Conan DoyleAvailable in Ebook only
Part of The Art of the Novella
“It’s an ugly business, Watson, an ugly dangerous business, and the more I see of it the less I like it.”
The tale about the chilling re-animation of a curse haunting the Baskerville family since Medieval times, wherein a supernatural beast stalks the gloomy moors, would be the most sensationally successful of all the Holmes stories, and a century later, it is still the most thrilling of them all. Full of moody atmospherics, suspicious characters, and dramatic discoveries, The Hound of the Baskervillesalso shows off something often overlooked about Doyle: his wonderful prose. Presented here as it first appeared in The Strand magazine in 1901, this great mystery still strikes many as the best ever written.
