The Hound of the Baskervilles is undoubtedly the finest of the Sherlock Holmes stories. It is a genuine Gothic masterpiece, covering themes of revenge, murder and mystery, set in both the busy London of the late 19th century, and on Dartmoor in Devonshire. The Moor itself plays a vital part in establishing the atmosphere of terror and suspense, within which Holmes and Watson battle to save the life of their client.
