Description


On a desolate, fog-filled moor, someone--or something--is murdering the Baskerville heirs.

So says Dr. Mortimer, a country practitioner who appeals to Dr. Watson and Detective Sherlock Holmes for help. Most recently, Sir Charles Baskerville was found dead from fright on a tree-strewn path outside his ancestral home, with the print of a large dog nearby.

Complicating the mystery is an ancient legend about the Baskervilles that Dr. Mortimer shares with Holmes and Watson: as the story goes, a fiendish hound hunted down one Hugo Baskerville generations before as retribution for Hugo's dastardly crimes against a neighboring girl.

Now, Sir Henry, the newest heir to the estate, is set to travel from London to Devonshire to take over his ancestral home. A mysterious letter warns him to remain put. A puzzled but delighted Holmes declares it one of the most intriguing puzzles he's had the pleasure of coming across. The question remains: is it indeed a supernatural beast that haunts the Baskerville heirs--or is something even more sinister out for their blood?
