Editorial Reviews

Edgar Allan Poe is commonly recognized as a master of horror, but "The Murders in the Rue Morgue" represents another genre in which he excelled - in fact, it is commonly recognized as the first-ever modern detective story. This thrilling, chilling tale follows investigator C. Auguste Dupin as he inquires into the double murder of a woman and her daughter, parsing clues including an unidentifiable non-human hair discovered at the scene.
Kerry Shale’s performance of this adrenaline-pumping whodunit is well paced, his enunciation clear and his delivery even and eerie. Shale expertly plays with the tension in Poe’s spine-tingling text, keeping listeners on the hook until its exciting conclusion.

excellent reading of a classic

Very well-done performance of a classic and still modern tale. The reader delineates seamlessly and undistractingly between Dupin and the narrator.

Good liustening

This ius well-presented. My only adverse observation is that it should have been divided into chapters.
