Audible Editor Reviews

Edgar Allan Poe is commonly recognized as a master of horror, but "The Murders in the Rue Morgue" represents another genre in which he excelled - in fact, it is commonly recognized as the first-ever modern detective story. This thrilling, chilling tale follows investigator C. Auguste Dupin as he inquires into the double murder of a woman and her daughter, parsing clues including an unidentifiable non-human hair discovered at the scene.

Kerry Shale’s performance of this adrenaline-pumping whodunit is well paced, his enunciation clear and his delivery even and eerie. Shale expertly plays with the tension in Poe’s spine-tingling text, keeping listeners on the hook until its exciting conclusion.
