An apartment on the rue Morgue turned into a charnel house; the corpse of a shopgirl dragged from the Seine; a high-stakes game of political blackmail-three mysteries that have enthralled the whole of Paris, and baffled the city's police. The brilliant Chevalier Auguste Dupin investigates - can he find the solution where so many others before him have failed? These three stories from the pen of Edgar Allan Poe are some of the most influential ever written, widely praised and credited with inventing the detective genre. This edition contains: 'The Murders in the Rue Morgue', 'The Mystery of Marie Roget' and 'The Purloined Letter'.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A perfect winter evening read... 5/5 stars." - New Books Magazine

"Each [of Poe's detective stories] is a root from which a whole literature has developed... Where was the detective story until Poe breathed the breath of life into it?" -- Arthur Conan Doyle

"He wasn't just a mystery/suspense writer. He was the first." -- Stephen King

"What a strange, though enormously talented writer, that Edgar Poe!" -- Fyodor Dostoevsky
