The Great Shelby Holmes and the Haunted Hound: 09/25/19
The Great Shelby Holmes and the Haunted Hound by Elizabeth Eulberg is inspired by the Hound of the Baskervilles. John Bryant, a friend of John Watson, invites him over to help with a problem.
The brownstone apartment he lives in with his mother is haunted. Just after dinner the howling begins. It's followed by stomping upstairs and the lights flickering on and off. The landlord swears the apartment in question is empty. But there are claw marks on the apartment door.
Watson, of course, decides to bring in Shelby after experiencing the haunting first hand. Shelby and Bryant, though, aren't friends and it takes Watson patience and hard work to get the two to tolerate each other.
For the observant reader, the clues are all there. The reason for the haunting and the who would benefit most from it. There are also a few red herrings to keep things interesting.
I don't know if there is a fifth book planned. If there is, I will definitely read it.
