The Hound of the Baskervilles is one of many Sherlock Holmes mystery classics written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859-1930). Written in 1902, it derives its title from the legendary and vicious hound that has cursed the Baskerville family for generations. The beginning and the end of the book take place in London, but most of the action takes place in Dartmoor in Devon County in England. Doyle has crafted a good balance of mystery, suspense, terror, and the supernatural. This book will keep you guessing as to who is responsible for the mysterious death of Sir Charles Baskerville and is best read in a few long segments of time. Highly recommended.
