ª
This abstract was translated from Pies Baskervillów
 
On bogs is very scary... Nights creeps through them black dog... Nobody goes out on swamp at night... Every inhabitant of gloomy Devon knows about that. The heir of the biggest estate in neighbourhood, knows about that too, the more that ghastly beast lurks on his life. The satanic existence from immemorial time oppressing the family of Baskerville for heart of stone Hugon de Baskerville. However something induces Sir Charles to go out late at night on marshes. Near at hand for gate, but these few steps are enough - next morning service finds in this place his mister dead. With congealed horror on face. And with imprinted in vicinity on path trace of the huge dog's paw... "The Hound of the Baskervilles" it is doubtlessly the best novel of detective Conan Doyle. It is history, ancestral legend, but reader focuses on a secret. Ably dosed, uncovering oneself gradually in measure, as Baskerville's curse, passes to gather black clouds over Sir Henry, the only one descendant of Sir Charles. Danger is outright perceptible, similarly how brave doctor Watson's fear, who puts on guard in Devon and reports to left in London Sherlock Holmes course of the next days.
Who is the mysterious figure accidentally illuminated on megalithic rock? Where does escape evenings servant Barrymore? Who is it really Stapleton? Did Sherlock Holmes completely forget about his helper? It turns out that Doctor's fears are unnecessary and in defiance of every pretences, detective is not in London, but he hides somewhere on marshes watching whole matter with concealment. Thanks his cunning, Black Dog becomes unmasked. It is usual animal, from blood and bone, from puppy kicked and beaten, in night smeared luminous paint. And though Sherlock Holmes wins after once next duel with crime, I can assure you, that it will be very hard to riddance image of the black beast trampling at heels in a dark room. Decidedly "The Hound of the Baskervilles" is a novel only for persons with strong nerves... There now for this perfect!!
