“”The Hound of the Baskervilles” is the best known of Doyle’s long stories. Like the others, it is entertaining and educational about life in those days. Dr. James Mortimer visits Sherlock Holmes over his concern for the new heir of the Baskerville estate. Sir Charles Baskerville recently died under strange conditions, and Sir Henry may also be threatened. Dr. John Watson will accompany Sir Henry as a guard (his revolver is handy). Watson learns more about this neighborhood. Holmes arrives later but lacks proof for the solution of the crime. Sir Henry will visit neighbors at night, alone. But Holmes, Lestrade, and Watson follow to rescue Sir Henry from a fiendish attack. Justice isn’t cheated, the villain pays for his crimes.
Murders are caused by love and money (or lust and greed), to get it or to keep it. See your local newspapers. Was this a critique of an hereditary aristocracy?
