Overview

The series Sherlock offers a fresh, contemporary take on the original Sir Arthur Conan Doyle stories and has helped introduce a whole new generation of fans to the legendary detective—these tie-in editions feature introductions from the show's creators and actorsIn this classic novel first published in The Strand in 1901, Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson are called to the haunting and beautiful moors of Dartmoor and the home of the Baskerville family, who seem to have fallen victim to a family curse. A terrifying specter in the shape of a great hound was once said to have hunted an ancestor across the moors, and the recent, mysterious death of Sir Charles Baskerville suggests that the hound has returned. But is this really a supernatural curse or is a much more dastardly and earthly plot afoot? Sherlock and Dr Watson must solve the riddle of the hound before another murder is committed.
