Review: This was such a thrilling mystery that I actually didn’t solve in anyway at all, but wow did I enjoy reading it. I also really liked that it was heavily Watson lead which was so nice he got a chance to be lead investigator for this mystery.
With it being set on the moors it automatically makes the setting of the story so eerie, so it’s easy to understand why the locals were scared of this phantom hound stalking the moors and scaring people to death, who wouldn’t be scared being there at night with that eerie thought surrounding you.
Everything about the way this one was written was done so perfectly, it felt so creepy and so eerie and I was loving reading along trying to figure out the mystery but not managing it, which I love as it prove how good it was.
I love these easy to read mysteries the classic Holmes and Watson cases but written in a much more fun, easy and understandable way. I loved delving into this amazing case with Watson.
