These carefully selected works can be fiction, non-fiction, historical documents or even biographies. We will always select for you three great works to instigate your mind, this time the topic is: Detective Fiction. When Edgar Allan Poe wrote his first Tales of Ratiocination. What he called stories for the mind. He had not imagined that he would be creating what we now know as Detective Fiction. For that reason, the#1 book selected is a collection of tales from Poe's great detective, Auguste Dupin. A parisian gentlemen with the sharpest mind. British author Arthur Conan Doyle was a fan of Poe. Inspired by Dupin tales, he created one of the most famous detectives of all fiction, Sherlock Holmes. So our book #2 could only be: The Hound of the Baskervilles. A harrowing tale of mystery in England's countryside. G. K. Chesterton created a different detective, a detective who was also a Catholic priest. The amateur detective, Father Brown, often known for his uncanny insight into human evil, is our choice #3. The book's name The Innocence of Father Brown. This is one of many books in the series 3 Books To Know. If you liked this book, look for the other titles in the series, we are sure you will like some of the topics.

Edgar Allan Poe

Edgar Allan Poe (Boston, Estados Unidos, 19 de enero de 1809 – Baltimore, Estados Unidos, 7 de octubre de 1849) fue un escritor, poeta, crítico y periodista romántico estadounidense, generalmente reconocido como uno de los maestros universales del relato corto, del cual fue uno de los primeros practicantes en su país. Fue renovador de la novela gótica, recordado especialmente por sus cuentos de terror. Considerado el inventor del relato detectivesco, contribuyó asimismo con varias obras al género emergente de la ciencia ficción. Por otra parte, fue el primer escritor estadounidense de renombre que intentó hacer de la escritura su modus vivendi, lo que tuvo para él lamentables consecuencias.
