WITH AN INTRODUC TION BY RUTH RENDELL
The Baskerville family curse tells of how a terrifying, supernatural hound roams the
moors around Baskerville Hall and preys on members of the family in revenge for a
ghastly crime committed by one of their ancestors. When Sir C harles Baskerville is found
dead in the grounds, with a large animal footprint near his lifeless body, the locals are
convinced that the hound is back. It is up to Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson to uncover
the truth and keep the new heir to the hall safe from danger.
