The country doctor had come to 221B Baker Street, the famous lodgings of Sherlock Holmes, with an eerie tale—the legend of the Hound of the Baskervilles, the devil-beast that haunted the lonely moors around the Baskervilles’ ancestral home. The tale warned the descendants of that ancient family never to venture out on the moor “in those dark hours when the powers of evil are exalted.” But one of the most recent Baskervilles, Sir Charles, was now dead, and the footprints of a giant hound had been found near his body. Would the new heir of the Baskervilles meet the same dreadful fate? Sherlock Holmes and his faithful friend Dr. Watson are faced with their most terrifying case in this wonderful classic of masterful detection and bone-chilling suspense.

This audiobook includes the bonus Sherlock Holmes story “The Adventure of the Dancing Men.”

    " Outstanding. Dr. Watson has the majority of this story unto himself and it is brilliantly narrated as he pursues the investigation by himself (mostly ;) and shows how far he has come under Holmes' tutelage. Really excellent. "

    " This is often cited as the best of the Holmes novels, if not the best of all the stories. It definitely lives up to those expectations. A complex plot that evokes intrigue and suspense. The only clear suspect is a supernatural demonic hound. It all wraps up with a logical explanation at the end. My only complaints were that it gets a bit dry in some of the middle chapters and the last chapter might explain things too thoroughly, but they are minor complaints and are necessary to plot. I think my favorite thing about this novel were the moody gripping descriptions of the moor and surrounding areas. Doyle provides everything with a haunted majesty that makes it easy to be swept up in. All said, I highly recommend this for anyone who wants a sample of Sherlock Holmes at his finest, "
