In my summer vacation, I read the book “The hound of the Baskervilles”, a mystery based one, which was written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
This story is based on a curse that killed the whole Baskerville generation. Due to that curse Mr. Hugo and Mr. Charles Baskerville faced death. The one who left in that generation who is supposed to be suffered is Mr. Henry Baskerville. So his friend Dr. Mortimer contacted Mr. Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson in order to help Henry. Sherlock Holmes was busy with other work so he sent Watson with Henry and Mortimer to Baskerville cottage. Watson was asked to send letters through the post on the daily news to Sherlock by the means of informing. so he did the same. Mr. & Mrs. Barry more were the housekeepers. One day Watson happened to know that someone was in the Grimpen mire and he himself left to search that person. Then he saw Sherlock over there. Sherlock Holmes was the one who was hiding in the Grimpen mire .Sherlock was not in London instead he was in Grimpen mire watching all the things and searching for new clues. At last, the day came to find the killer .The killer of Baskerville generation, the killer of Mr. Hugo and Mr. Charles was a hound trained to kill Baskerville generation by identifying their shoes smell. Thus, Sherlock finds the killer.
I recommend this book for my entire friend who loves mysteries’. I rate this book 9/10
