Summary

“Mr Holmes, they were the footprints of a gigantic hound!” 
The Hound of the Baskervilles is the third of the four crime novels written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle featuring the famous detective Sherlock Holmes.The novel was serialized in The Strand Magazine and was published in book form in 1902. It was the first Sherlock Holmes tale since the detective’s shocking “death” in the story “The Final Problem” (1893) but was set prior to his demise. The mysterious circumstances surrounding the death of Sir Baskerville sparks one of the most extraordinary cases ever to challenge the brilliant analytical mind of Sherlock Holmes. 
Sir Charles Baskerville is found dead on the wild Dartmouth Moors with the footprints of a giant hound nearby and the murder is blamed on a family curse. It is left to Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson to solve the mystery of the legend of the supernatural and gruesome hound before Sir Charles's heir comes to similarly painful end. 
Widely considered the finest Sherlock Holmes novel, The Hound of the Baskervilles has become the  defining book of the great detective and millions have read with enjoyment and horror the story of Holmes, Watson and the infamous hound.

    When a yacht blows up in the Newport Beach Harbor killing a California senator, FBI Agent Beck Murray is reminded of another mega-yacht fire ten years earlier. Then a rookie cop, he pulled popular teenage TV star Piper Nolan out of the water. He's never forgotten her terror or her rambling story, but the investigation was shut down before it got started.    
    Now the current explosion provides a clue that leads back to Piper, and Beck knows it can't be a coincidence. But Piper is even less willing to talk to him now. The former It Girl has hidden herself in the shadows. She has secrets and is clearly terrified.  
    Are her secrets twisted up in murder? Did she lie to him before? Is she lying to him now?  
    The danger heightens when another body drops. Beck needs to find a killer before anyone else becomes a target, including himself…and maybe the woman he's beginning to love.
