Synopsis:

When the body of Marie Rogêt is found in the Seine River, detective C. Auguste Dupin uses his superior deductive skills to discover the identity of the murderer. “The Mystery of Marie Rogêt” is based in part on the actual murder of Mary Cecilia Rogers in New York in the mid-nineteenth century, and is believed to be the first example of real-life crime used as a foundation for fictional narrative.

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”.
