Description

In Sherlock Holmes: The Dark Mysteries, Sherlock Holmes expert David Stuart Davies has selected the cases of the great detective that best reflect Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s deep interest in the supernatural. The first is the terrifying novel The Hound of the Baskervilles, followed by nine Gothic adventures: ‘The Sussex Vampire’, ‘The Creeping Man’, ‘Shoscombe Old Place’, ‘The Disappearance of Lady Frances Carfax’, ‘The Veiled Lodger’, ‘The Devil’s Foot’, ‘The Blanched Soldier’ and ‘The Cardboard Box’. All of the stories are accompanied by their original illustrations.
