In 'The Hound of the Baskervilles', Holmes unearths the truth behind a sinister family legend. In 'The Sign of Four', Holmes deals with some dark and sinister characters, including a murderous pygmy, and a pair of deadly twins. In 'The Blue Carbuncle', Holmes holds the key to freeing an innocent man.
