The Baskerville?s have an ancient family legend, of a hound from hell that reaps vengeance upon all the Baskerville men. Now Sir Charles Baskerville is dead under mysterious circumstances. His nephew and heir, Sir Henry Baskerville, returns to England to inherit the family estate. Can Sherlock Holmes save him from the demonic hound? The Hound of the Baskervilles remains the most famous and most celebrated Sherlock Holmes story of all time. Holmes needs all of his cunning and conniving to break through the supernatural legend and hunt down the murder that he believes lies beneath. The Remastered version is packed with action and builds to an ending as intense as the legend itself. This edition is not the original text. Rather, it is a remastered version that strives to make the classic story more accessible. While the vast majority of the text is original, hundreds of modifications have been made to make the story an easier, smoother reading experience for modern readers. We hope these changes will allow a new generation to enjoy the brilliance of Sherlock Holmes.
