Welcome to the 3 Books To Know series, our idea is to help readers learn about fascinating topics through three essential and relevant books. These carefully selected works can be fiction, non-fiction, historical documents or even biographies.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.
