News and Events :: The Baskerville Legacy

The Baskerville Legacy goes on the road

Well, after that spate of ridiculously summery weather, things seems to be reverting to type and autumn is setting in. It’s that time of year when you want to cosy in with a great, atmospheric read – none of that whimsy you’ve been reading over the summer. It just so happens that John O’Connell has written just the thing (fancy that!). Based on real events, The Baskerville Legacy is a real creeper of a novel that brings to life the much-debated story of the writing of The Hounds of the Baskervilles. Did Conan-Doyle really author the book or was it stolen from its inventor, Bertram Fletcher Robinson? Set on Dartmoor, it is not a tale to be read late at night…

AND for all you Sherlock Holmes fans, John O’Connell will be talking at Clapham Waterstones on Oct 20th. He is fascinating to listen to on the subject and there will no doubt be plenty of debate as to what really did happen between Conan-Doyle and Fletcher-Robinson…
