Another Adventure of Sherlock Holmes di (autore) Arthur Conan Doyle
2012 Reprint of 1902 Edition. "The Hound of the Baskervilles" is the third of four crime novels by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle featuring the detective Sherlock Holmes. Originally serialized in "The Strand Magazine" from August 1901 to April 1902, it is set largely on Dartmoor in Devon in England's West Country and tells the story of an attempted murder inspired by the legend of a fearsome, diabolical hound. Sir Charles Baskerville, a baronet, is found lying dead among yew trees in the grounds of his seat, Baskerville Hall. The cause of death is ascribed to a heart attack. Fearing for the safety of Sir Charles' nephew and only known heir, Sir Henry Baskerville-who was coming to London from Canada to collect his inheritance-Dr. James Mortimer travels from Devon to London, and appeals for help to Sherlock Holmes.
