The Hound of the Baskervilles by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle book review.

Lord Henry of Baskerville Castle drops dead in the moor. Huge footprints of hell-hound origin are found near his body.

Sherlock Holmes smokes a pound of tobacco, drinks two pots of coffee, and stares into the fire at his Baker Street bachelor pad.

Watson spends the day at his club.

They meet in the evening to discuss the case.

The next day, Watson is accompanying the new heir of Baskervilles to his family home.

One million pound inheritance.

Live in housekeepers.

Family portraits adorn the walls.

They own the entire moor. Antediluvian structures of stone found throughout the bog.

Stapleton, the etymologist, introduces HIS WIFE as HIS SISTER.

The beautiful brunette is tied up in the garret, deep bruises found on her arms and neck.

The hell-hounds can be heard on the moor crying for the souls of the damned.

The situation is jarring. Baskerville’s constitution can only be saved after a round the world respite with the good doctor Mortimer.

The case is closed. The hell-hounds sated.

If it hadn’t been for these meddling kids, the estate would be mine.
