About this Recording

POE, E.A.: Murders in the Rue Morgue (Unabridged)

Auguste Dupin, investigator extraordinaire, was the remarkable creation of Edgar Allan Poe. 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. Here are the three Dupin stories together on one audiobook release.
