Collected in one set, here are the foundational novels and stories that created the mystery genre as we know it today. Edgar Allan Poe started it all, and he is represented by a volume of his detective tales, while Sherlock Holmes is featured in three of Arthur Conan Doyle's classic books. An old favorite, Wilkie Collins's The Moonstone is here, along with Gaston Leroux's Phantom of the Opera, Oscar Wilde's witty Picture of Dorian Gray, and Fyodor Dostoevsky's stark yet redemptive Crime and Punishment. The set also includes a blank journal, so that you can write down your thoughts, ideas, or a novel of your own.
