A blood-curdling tale of "murder, mystery, and walkies," Arthur Conan Doyle's celebrated Sherlock Holmes novel from 1901 follows the great detective as he investigates the local legend of a supernatural hound—though we doubt Conan Doyle had in mind the rabid Chihuahua menacing our heroes on the cover. We love this Pulp! The Classics edition of the Holmes tale, which presents it in an irreverent, intriguing new light, though the text is the author's own. From the back cover: "A desolate moor, a diabolical dog in need of a muzzle, and some inbred locals; Sherlock Holmes is really up against it. With the help of his trusty sidekick Dr. Watson, Holmes pieces together a mystery that has captured the imagination of readers across the decades. All whilst practicing a serious coffee and cocaine habit."
