The room was on the fourth floor, and the door was locked - with the key on the inside. The windows were closed and fastened - on the inside. The chimney was too narrow for a cat to get through. So how did the murderer escape? And whose were the two angry voices heard by the neighbours as they ran up the stairs?

Nobody in Paris could find any answers to this mystery - except Auguste Dupin, who could see further and think more clearly than other people. The answers to the mystery were all there, but only a clever man could see them.

An Oxford Bookworms Library reader for learners of English, adapted from the Edgar Allan Poe original by Jennifer Bassett.

    " The genesis of the Detective story. "

    " For the time, I'm sure that Poe's Dupin was inspiring and did inspire libraries of detective fiction to come...but it is dated. What was probably novel, and original reads like a phonebook. I will make the exception for Purloined Letter. Of the three Dupin stories, PL was quite readable. I would easily give it 4 stars, but the Case of Marie Roget pulled the entire work down to a 3. I may also be allowing my appreciation of Poe's ouvre to keep the rating at three instead of 2. Can't say that I'd recommend this volume to anyone other than those who have an interest in the history of crime fiction, particularly Sherlock Holmes. "

    " I love this collection of short stories for creating the mystery-solving genre as I know and love it. It was a truly fascinating read because it is the first of it's kind, but whereas Sherlock Holmes is brilliant, Dupin was merely interesting. And sometimes long winded... "

    " These tales were precursor to the entire genera in a way, but having read the likes of Carr and Ellery Queen, I have to agree that they don't offer the expected bafflement. Even so, a Poe short story is always welcome for the departure it provides into the dark territories of the human heart. "
