Considered to be the first literary detective, C. Auguste Dupin turns his deductive skills to solving two seemingly un-solvable mysteries. In "The Murders in the Rue Morgue" Dupin must deduce the identity of the murderer of Madame L'Espanaye and her daughter despite contradictory witnesses and puzzling evidence. In "The Mystery of Marie RogĂȘt" Dupin again uses his skills to discover the identity of the murderer of Marie RogĂȘt, whose body has been discovered in the Seine River.

A pioneer of the short story genre, Poe's stories typically captured themes of the macabre and included elements of the mysterious. His better-known stories include "The Fall of the House of Usher", "The Pit and the Pendulum", "The Murders in the Rue Morgue", "The Masque of the Red Death" and "The Tell-Tale Heart".
