Rationalism is pitted against the supernatural and good against evil as Sherlock Holmes sets out to defeat a foe almost his equal. He survives a few attempts on his life. On the other hand, I am kind of a sucker for glowing dogs. It was truly terrifying enough to frighten Sir Charles to death.
Occasionally, the website mis-applies a block from a previous visitor. Beryl is indeed Jack's legitimate wife, abused and forced into posing as his sister to seduce Sir Henry and expose him also to the fangs of the hound. Afterward, he apologized and asked Sir Henry over for dinner next Friday. Unknown to everyone, even to his friend Watson, Sherlock Holmes has been hiding in the moor all the time and has solved the mystery.
Apparently, a convict, Seldon, the Notting Hill murderer has escaped and is suspected to be in the area. Barrymore, that the signal is to the escaped convict, who is her brother. They also find Sir Henry's boot, which was used to give the dog the scent of Sir Henry. But, when they interview the cab driver, they think they finally have a clue, until he tells them the fare used the name, Sherlock Holmes. You have to concentrate quite hard to understand the language in places but I would recommend this book to confident readers from about age 11 who enjoy mysterious, slightly spooky crime novels.
