THE MURDERS IN THE RUE MORGUE, THE MYSTERY OF MARIE ROGET, THE PURLOINED LETTER The Dupin Stories

by | Read by Kerry Shale

Mystery & Suspense • 4.2 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2002

Fans of Poe and detective stories alike will enjoy this fantastic performance of the Dupin stories read by Kerry Shale. Shale takes these very early tales in the detective genre and brings life to the details. Despite Poe's verbosity, his characters are engaging as they rely on newspaper accounts to solve crimes. Shale is at his finest when reading C. Auguste Dupin's parts, giving the investigator's English the perfect French accent. In particular, Shale shines in “The Purloined Letter,” jumping wholeheartedly into the role of each character. His characters’ laughs and his own enthusiasm are infectious. Naxos ties up a great package of dramatic performances with a wonderful selection of classical music between chapters. H.L.S. © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 03]
