Murder by Death

I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.

The Hound of the Baskervilles

The Hound of the Baskervilles - Illustrated -  Arthur Conan Doyle

What can I say?  Hound of the Baskervilles is a classic and might possibly be the best of the Holmes stories.  Perfectly crafted, and perfectly atmospheric, this is the kind of story that can be read again and again.


In fact, this is at least my third read and on this go-around I was much more able to admire the subtle clues and hints Conan Doyle wove through the tale.  Although I do have one question:  Dr. Mortimer's wife is mentioned several times in the story and I have to wonder how she felt about him traipsing off around the world without her?


If you like gothic, or mysteries, or just a good atmospheric thriller, you can't go wrong with this one.


This was the book I used for my Read with Booklikes Friends square for Halloween Book Bingo.
