Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis
“To speak of the detective story is to speak of Edgar Allan Poe, who invented the genre.” — Jorge Luis Borges

Before Sherlock Holmes there was C. Auguste Dupin, the brilliant Parisian detective whose unique powers of observation and deduction allowed him to solve the most mysterious of crimes. The Detective Stories of Edgar Allan Poe brings together all three stories featuring Dupin: The Murders in the Rue Morgue, The Mystery of Marie Rogêt, and The Purloined Letter. In these pages lie the very origins of the detective story, a genre Poe not only invented but mastered. As Arthur Conan Doyle acknowledged, Poe “was father of the detective tale, and covered its limits so completely I fail to see how his followers can find ground to call their own.”
