“… in those hours of intense mental concentration during which he weighed every particle of evidence, constructed alternative theories, balanced one against the other, and made up his mind as to which points were essential and which immaterial.” ? Arthur Conan Doyle, The Hound of The Baskervilles
A hound from hell. A terrified young man. Is a monster really stalking Dartmoor? Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson investigate the truth about the monstrous creature which apparently killed their client’s father.
This may be the most popular of all of the Sherlock Holmes stories. Inspired by regional mythology of the British Isles concerning hell-hounds, the tale tells of detective Sherlock Holmes and his assistant Dr. Watson as they are called to investigate an alleged curse upon the house of the Baskervilles.
