Book Description

Can you solve the mystery?

Assume the role of C. Auguste Dupin--the investigator of Edgar Allan Poe's classic mysteries "The Murders in the Rue Morgue," "The Mystery of Marie Roget," and "The Purloined Letter"--as you attempt to solve the curious case of the mysterious death of Poe himself.

-or-

Read as Charles Dickens hires once-famous, now-faded Parisian investigator C. August Dupin as the two travel to Baltimore, tracking leads and talking to anyone who might know anything about the mysterious death of Edgar Allan Poe.

Will you decide to make the choices yourself, or will you follow as Dickens and Dupin do the heavy story lifting?

The choices are yours, and that makes the story yours, too.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Delightful Distraction June 7, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A fun exercise in arm chair detection, this participatory story makes good use of the ebook format to revisit a childhood pleasure. The read through version was totally different, with M. Dupin being slightly more hard oiled,

3.0 out of 5 stars Limited choices, not closely related to the Poe story February 13, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The original Edgar Allen Poe story and the choose-your-own adventure story have very different feels to them--very clearly different authors, and no attempt to mimic Poe's style. My other complaint is that there were not many choices to make, and most of them were obvious choices--one leads to death, and the other steers you back to the original story.
