Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
Summoned to investigate two deaths associated with some apparently supernatural phenomena, married sleuths Sherlock Holmes and Mary Russell revisit the scene of Conan Doyle's The Hound of the Baskervilles to uncover the source of a centuries-old family curse, at the center of which is Dartmoor. Reader's Guide included. Reprint. 15,000 first printing.

Review:
"[T]here's no resisting the appeal of King's thrillingly moody scenes of Dartmoor and her lovely evocation of its legends."

Marilyn Stasio, New York Times Book Review, 01/11/1998

Review:
"Despite the incursion of motorcars and electricity, what stays longest is the impression of the moor's brooding timelessness, as powerful now as back in 1902."

Kirkus, 12/01/1997

Book Description: St Martin s Press, United States, 2007. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 211 x 141 mm. Brand New Book. In re-creating Sherlock Holmes in previous books as an adjunct to her chief protagonist, Mary Russell, King has set the couple s adventures in a milieu consistent with her own creation and, although true to the place and period, independent of Conan Doyle s work. Holmes has been invited by his old friend the Rev. Baring-Gould to look into not only an unexplained death on the moor but, more important in the ancient cleric s mind, sightings of a phantom coach on the moor - possibly inhabited by a phantom noblewoman and accompanied by some phantom dogs. Holmes, in turn, pulls Mary from her studies at Oxford, enlists her in the quest, and finds himself taking a second seat to her endeavors. True to their expectations on the forbidding and difficult moor, the rumors have a real-world explanation, but it is one that combines more wild emotion, surprise, and frightening suspense than any ghost story could.
