Poe is considered one of the best horror story writers ever. In this carefully crafted novel, Poe sets up a foundation for an ironic detective story that pits mind over matter and stumps the office police in their work. Through logic, detective C. Auguste Dupin comes to the rescue and pulls off a stunning coup that sabotages a blackmail plot against the Royal Family. This is a story you will never forget.
