The Hound of the Baskervilles is a Sherlock Holmes novel. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle started writing it in 1901 and finished it in 1902. It was very popular, because fans had been waiting a long time for a new Sherlock Holmes story. This was because Conan Doyle had killed off Sherlock Holmes in the story "The Final Problem", originally published in 1893 and afterwards collected in the book The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes. He was later revealed to be alive in "The Adventure of the Empty House" (originally published in 1903), a story in the book The Return of Sherlock Holmes, which was released in 1905.
The book tells the story of how Holmes and his friend Doctor Watson solve the mystery of the death of Sir Charles Baskerville. In the story, people think that he died because of a family curse, to do with an evil dog. In the end, the dog is revealed to be a trained big dog painted with glow-in-the-dark paint to make it seem evil.
