故事梗概

九月一个美丽的早晨,神探歌洛克.福尔摩斯收到一封来自一位名叫詹姆斯.摩梯末的医生的拜访信。上午十点半摩梯末医生如约而至,他随身带来了一扎神秘的手稿,这扎手稿来自已故的查尔斯.巴斯克雄尔爵士。信中讲述了一百多年前巴斯克维尔家庭的祖先雨果.巴斯克维尔是如何为非作歹,最终招致自己丧命在传说中凶悍无比的巴斯克维尔猎犬的利齿之下的故事。自此之后,巴斯克维尔家族就笼罩在祖先所犯下罪行的阴影之中,家族族长的继承人们都相继以蹊跷而恐怖的方式死去。

起初福尔摩斯并不为摩梯末医生的故事所吸引,认为这只是个有趣的传说。但随着摩梯末医生逐步向福尔摩斯讲述了查尔斯.巴斯克维尔爵士死因的疑点时,福尔摩斯决定插手此案,因为他意识到这不仅关系到已故伯爵查尔斯的真正死因,还关系到巴斯克维尔庄园的下一个继承人亨利.巴斯克维尔的生命安全。在福尔摩斯的巧妙安排之下。他的忠实搭档华生医生陪伴亨利爵士回到巴斯克维尔庄园。

在巴斯克维尔庄园期间,华生医生接二连三地遇到了种种怪异之事,如半夜时分女人凄惨的哭声,管家白瑞摩夜间可疑的举动,还有他后来发现的一封查尔斯爵士死前未被完全烧毁的信件的碎片,等等。这诸多的疑团使他坠入云雾之中。正当他决定开始深入虎穴探听虚实之时,他却出乎意料地遇到了从天而降的福尔摩斯。原来福尔摩斯为了弄清传说中那只可怕猎犬的秘密及发生在巴斯克维尔庄园的惨案,故意避人耳目,独自躲在人迹罕至的沼泽地,忍受暴风雨以及孤独和寒冷的袭击。而此时狡猾的罪犯也开始按捺不住,逐渐浮出水面,他迫不及待地误杀了穿着亨利爵士衣服的逃犯塞尔多。这使福尔摩斯更加确信自己的推断无误。于是,福尔摩斯果断地用亨利引出了真正的凶手——斯台普顿。原来两年前刚刚搬到德文郡的斯台普顿就是罗杰.巴斯克维尔,即查尔斯爵士最小弟弟的儿子。多年前人们误以为身为逃犯的罗杰死于南美洲,但实际上,他并没有死,而且还有了一个儿子也叫罗杰,他就是斯台普顿。斯台普顿知道如果查尔斯和亨利都死了,那么他将能得到巴斯克维尔家族的巨额财产,因此他便利用巴斯克维尔猎犬的传说不择手段地杀害了自己的亲人。他先是用怒犬吓死了年老体衰的查尔斯爵士,随后又妄图让恶犬咬死亨利爵士,但福尔摩斯最终识破了他的诡计,在华生和警探的配合下杀死了那只可怕的猎犬,而斯台普顿也在深夜仓皇出逃时生死不明……

BEDTIME READING

The Hound of the Baskervilles

巴斯克维尔猎犬

原著Conan Doyle(英)柯南·道尔

CHAPTER ONE

The Beginning of the Case

It's a beautiful September morning. The sky was blue and the air cool and fresh. The sun shone warmly into the windows of my house on Baker Street in London. I had just finished eating breakfast, and was enjoying the day's newspaper. My friend and

partner Holmes, who usually slept later than I did, was still eating. A man was ooming to see us at ten thirty, and I wondered if Holmes would finish eating his boiled egg and porridge before our visitor arrived!

But Holmes did not seem to be in a hurry. He was reading a letter. It was from a doctor named James Mortimer, who wanted to meet with Holmes.

"Well, Watson," Holmes said to me, "Perhaps Dr. Mortimer's case will not be very interesting for us. His letter tells us nothing about his problem, but he says it is very important. I hope that we can help him to someway.

At exactly ten-thirty, there was a knock on the front door.

"Excellent!" said Holmes. "Clearly, this Dr.Mortimer is a man who will not waste our valuable time!

We stood up as a servant brought our visitor into the sitting room.

"Good morning, gentlemen," he said. "I am Dr.James Mortimer, from the town of Grimpen in Devonshire. And you must be Mr. Sherlock Holmes”As the two men shook hands, Hohnes said

"It is a pleasure to meet you, Dr. Mortimer. This is my friend and partner, Dr. John Watson. "

"Certainly," said Mortimer, as he turned to me and shook hands. "The strange story I am about to discuss with you is very difficult. If it will help for Dr. Watson to listen to the conversation, then he should stay."

Although he lived in the English eomtryside, Mortimer looked like an educated city man. He was very tall and thin. His gray eyes shone brightly with intelligence, and he wore small, thin golden glasses.However, his clothing~old and worn, like a countryman's. His face was young, but very tired and worried looking. He took some papers from, his pocket,and said:

"Mr. Holmes, I need your help and advice. There is a strange and frightening mystery that must be solved”

"Sit down,Dr M.rtimer," said Holmes, "and tell us about it.Would you like some tea?”
