Editorial Reviews

Kerry Shale’s impressively elastic vocal stylings animate the diverse menagerie of characters, from amateur sleuth C. Auguste Dupin and his erudite Parisian lilt to the Police Prefect and his hearty, reverberating guffaw, found in Edgar Allan Poe’s third and final foray into detective fiction, a genre some say he laid the groundwork for, which delves into the circumstances surrounding the search for a letter stolen from a woman’s boudoir by the conniving Minister D---, who’s hell-bent on blackmailing her.

Publisher's Summary

Written in the 1840s, Poe presented the acutely observant, shrewd but idiosyncratic character who, with his chronicler, provided the inspiration for the more famous Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson.The Dupin Stories include the following:

  • "The Murders in the Rue Morgue"
  • "The Mystery of Marie Roget"
  • "The Purloined Letter"

    a short and sweet classic

    This classic short actually has a short but profound message. It uses a lot of words to get there, but that is to he expected given the year written.

    Easy to listen; pleasant reader

    Good narration. Easy to tell characters apart. It's a fun Poe story. Enjoyed the story and would listen to these readers again.
