This was an Audible buy.
First of all, I love the mystery short story. Some of these stories were absolutely fantastic. "The Purloined Letter" by Poe was a great surprise. I thoroughly enjoyed both the writing and the reading. Although I am not a fan of Dicken "Hunted Down" had a brevity to it that allowed him to shine.
