Edgar Allan Poe is the undisputed originator of the detective story. His brilliant, imaginative sleuth C. Auguste Dupin set the stage for eccentric, logic wielding investigators like Sherlock Holmes and Hercule Poirot. This audio collection of Poes three Dupin stories also includes one non-Dupin detective tale, Thou Art the Man. It features celebrity narrator Bronson Pinchot. The story titles are: The Murders in the Rue Morgue, The Mystery of Marie Rogêt, The Purloined Letter, and Thou Art the Man.

Edgar Allan Poe was one of the most original writers in the history of American letters, a genius who was tragically misunderstood in his lifetime. He was a seminal figure in the development of science fiction and the detective story, and exerted a great influence on Dostoyevsky, Arthur Conan Doyle, Jules Verne, and Charles Baudelaire.
Bronson Pinchot is best known for his lead role in the popular sitcom Perfect Strangers. His film roles include Beverly Hills Cop and Risky Business. He has performed in several Broadway productions, and continues to appear on television in various roles.
