Publisher's Summary

Could the sudden death of Sir Charles Baskerville have been caused by the gigantic ghostly hound which is said to have haunted his family for generations? Arch-rationalist Sherlock Holmes characteristically dismisses the theory as nonsense. Claiming to be immersed in another case, he sends Watson to Devon to protect the Baskerville heir and to observe the suspects at close hand.

Could It Get Any Better?

Nope, probably not! After listening to a dramatized version, I decided I needed to revisit the genuine Conan Doyle article.

Dated it may be, and it may have become something of a cliche, but "The Hound" still resonates. It's a great, suspenseful yarn and makes for a wonderful short listen - especially with the hallowed tones of Derek Jacobi.

I say go for it!
