Arthur Conan, Sir
HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES
York : Ballantine Books, 1989, c1902.
damp, gray, melancholy moor sends shivers through every bone in my body.
As I sit here, looking at the blustery scene outside my carriage window,
I wonder to myself, What awaits me at Baskerville Hall? It was ot
so long ago that Dr. Mortimer first approached Holmes and myself, requesting
our assistance in solving a case. The case was that of a curse --
a curse which had haunted the Baskerville family for generations.
Legend spoke of a hound -- a beast, actually -- which had viciously ripped
the throat out of Sir Hugo Baskerville on that very same damp, gray, melancholy
moor many years earlier. Recently, Sir Charles Baskerville is found
dead, having met his end under similarly mysterious circumstances.
It is now up to me to discover the secret behind the curse before another
of the family's scions falls victim to THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES.
