Three macabre and confounding mysteries for the first and greatest of detectives, Auguste Dupin

An apartment on the rue Morgue turned into a charnel house; the corpse of a shopgirl dragged from the Seine; a high-stakes game of political blackmail - three mysteries that have enthralled the whole of Paris, and baffled the city’s police. The brilliant Chevalier Auguste Dupin investigates - can he find the solution where so many others before him have failed?

These three stories from the pen of Edgar Allan Poe are some of the most influential ever written, widely praised and credited with inventing the detective genre. This edition contains: ’The Murders in the Rue Morgue’, ’The Mystery of Marie RogĂȘt’ and ’The Purloined Letter

My thoughts
Would I recommend it? Yes
Would I read more by this author? Yes,
This isn't the first time I've ever read anything by Edgar Allen Poe, in fact every once in a while I do read something of his, but to tell the truth his not one of my favorite authors to read. But as soon as I saw this I knew I wanted to read it because I never knew he wrote mysteries, I knew he wrote poem's and horror but not mysteries. So, this was a chance at reading something new from him and surprisingly I liked it way better than I thought I would, was they the greatest detective mysteries I've ever read no, but they were still very good and was a lot of different from his normal stuff that I read from him. Would I read this again? Yes because these mysteries are an  example of the first detective stories in English. With that said I want to say think you to NetGalley as well as the publisher for letting me read and review them exchange for my honest opinion.
