Master storyteller Jim Weiss introduces and reads these adaptations of three of the cornerstones of classical detective fiction. In Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Purloined Letter,” Auguste Dupin uses a ruse to recover a stolen letter. In “The Blue Cross,” the story that introduced the world to G.K. Chesterton’s Father Brown, the small, round cleric matches wits with the world’s greatest thief, and the world’s greatest police detective. In Arthur Conan Doyle’s “The Red-Headed League,” Sherlock Holmes helps a young man understand how he was duped. The choice of stories is superb, and Weiss brings them alive with the rich energy he brings to his reading. Parents, teachers, and librarians should take note: This collection is an ideal resource for introducing children, teens, and the rest of us to the classics of mystery literature. S.E.S.
