Elements of The Plot
A family curse of a deadly hound dating to evil Sir Hugo Baskerville is unearthed in a 1700s manuscript. In the late 1800s his descendent Sir Charles drops dead outside at night. Large pawprints are nearby, with sightings of a spectral dog roaming moorland swathed in mists. Later, close to Baskerville Hall, a murderous convict breaks out of Dartmoor Prison in Devon. Amidst real danger to himself and others, Holmes goes undercover to unravel the threads of this mystery. What begins as a supernatural Gothic horror tale ends in a tense thriller.
