In 1841, Edgar Allan Poe published "The Murders in the Rue Morgue" and created the crime story, a genre that is still booming to this day. Explore some of the most integral crime stories throughout the years, including works by James M. Cain, Dashiell Hammett, and, of course, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Read them in order, beginning with Poe's genre-defining tale, and work your way chronologically through the book to watch the evolution of the genre; or just dive in wherever it suits you—either way, you'll love this anthology of whodunits, private eye stories, and pure crime fiction that is clever, chilling, and completely captivating.
