The Purloined Letter is a detective story written by Edgar Allan Poe and originally published in 1844. It features the famous detective Auguste Dupin.

A very important letter was stolen from a minister. The police search his house, looking in every corner, every piece of furniture, every nook and cranny to try to find it, without success. And when they fail, they decide to turn to the amateur detective Dupin.

A missing letter, political blackmail, a person who does not want his secret to come to light? Will the great Dupinbe able to solve this mystery?

"At Paris, just after dark one gusty evening in the autumn of 18—, I was enjoying the twofold luxury of meditation and a meerschaum, in company with my friend C. Auguste Dupin, in his little back library, or book-closet, au troisiême, No. 33, Rue Dunôt, Faubourg St. Germain."
