Rate this:
"Edgar Allan Poe invented the genre of detective fiction with these three mesmerising stories of a young French eccentric named C. Auguste Dupin- The Murders in the Rue Morgue, The Mystery of Marie Rog t and The Purloined Letter . Years later Dorothy Sayers would describe these tales 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 unique Dupin stories still stand out as utterly engrossing page-turners. This edition reproduces the definitive text of these stories and an introduction and appendix on The Earliest Detectives by the novelist Matthew Pearl."
