"I tell you, Watson, this time we have a foeman who is worthy of our steel! It's an ugly business, Watson, an ugly, dangerous business—and the more I see it, the less I like it," proclaims Sherlock Holmes in this most famous of all Arthur Conan Doyle's Holmes mysteries. This 1902 novel follows the great detective as he investigates a death seemingly caused by a family curse, in the form of a supernatural hellhound. Sir Charles Baskerville apparently died of a heart attack after encountering the beast on the moors, and Sir Henry, last heir of the Baskerville estate, fears that the vengeful hound will destroy him as well.
