Hound of the Baskervilles by Conan Doyle

The Hound of the Baskervilles is the third of the four crime novels written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle featuring the detective Sherlock Holmes.  …

… tells the story of an attempted murder inspired by the legend of a fearsome, diabolical hound of supernatural origin. …

As usual, it’s told by Watson. BUT the main character is Watson, as well. Not Holmes.

As I’ve been reading Agatha Christie, I couldn’t help but compare the two greats of British murder mystery.

Christie is about 100 times better in every way. Better plots. Better writing.

She said she enjoyed the Sherlock Holmes books, however.
