Sherlock Holmes solves the mystery of a supernatural hound threatening the life of a Dartmoor baronet

What is the curse that hangs over the Baskerville family? What is the terrible beast that roams the moor?

Exhausted by his most recent case, Holmes sends Watson to Baskerville Hall to solve the mystery on his own while he takes a well-deserved rest in London’s nightspots.

Watson, on his first solo case, investigates the strange goings on at Baskerville Hall and begins to suspect everyone he questions, including himself, until, frustrated at every step, he has to call for the great detective to help him out.

Their discovery at Grympen Mire of the real Hound of the Baskervilles is too horrible to tell.
