Pub. Date:
A fourth floor room, a door locked with the key inside - no way in, no way out. Edgar Alan Poe is the true grandfather of the murder mystery. Decades before Sherlock Holmes and Hercule Poirot, Poe gave us C. Auguste Dupin, a man able to solve mysteries through observation and deduction. This is fiction noir in the true sense, set in the dark back streets of 1840s Paris. The juxtaposition of Dupin's clear logic, and the insanity of the outside world make this a psychological thriller of the first rank.

display_description Between 1841 and 1844, Edgar Allan Poe invented the detective fiction genre with his mesmerizing stories of a young French eccentric named C. Auguste Dupin. Introducing to literature the concept of applying reason to solving crime, these tales brought Poe fame and fortune. Years later, Dorothy Sayers would describe "The Murders in the Rue Morgue" as "almost a complete manual of detective theory and practice." Indeed, Poe's short mysteries inspired the creation of countless literary sleuths, among them Sherlock Holmes. Today, the Dupin stories still stand out as unique and utterly engrossing.In addition to "The Murders in the Rue Morgue," this collection contains "The Purloined Letter" (also featuring C. Auguste Dupin), "The Thousand-and-Second Tale of Scheherazade," "A Descent into the Maelstrom," "The Raven," and "The Masque of the Red Death."
