|Title:||Dupin Did It: A Reading from 'An Exaggerated Murder' & Discussion of 'The Purloined Letter'|
Josh Cook reads from his critically acclaimed detective novel, An Exaggerated Murder and discusses Edgar Allen Poe's classic detective story, "The Purloined Letter."
“If Sherlock Holmes and Ignatius J. Reilly had a baby, that child would be Trike Augustine, private investigator. Rude, slobby, irritatingly brilliant, quick-witted -- that's Trike. With the help of his saner, more reasonable employees, Trike has been tasked with finding a missing billionaire, but will the stupid clues stump the smart man, or will Trike manage to keep himself and his associates out of harm's way and solve the case before it's too late? An Exaggerated Murder is a fantastic, funny, smart debut, and I eagerly await more from Cook.”
