The Hound of the Baskervilles

Sir Charles Baskerville has been found dead in the grounds of his Devon home, his face a frozen picture of horror and fear. The only clue is the footprint of a terrible beast. Locals blame the diabolical curse of the Baskervilles - and the legendary monster that haunts the moor. Can Holmes and Watson solve the case before Sir Charles's heir meets the same grizzly end?  Read the story online by clicking on above image...
