Sobre o livro
What if the great detective C Auguste Dupin was not Edgar Allan Poe's fictional creation, but his friend? Summer, 1840. Edgar Allan Poe arrives in London to meet his friend C Auguste Dupin, in the hope that the great detective will help him solve a family mystery. For Poe has inherited a mahogany box containing sheathes of letters that implicate his grandparents in some of London's most heinous and scandalous crimes - those committed by the so-called London Monster who, for two years, terrorized the city's streets, stalking attractive, well-to-do young women, slicing the clothing and their derrieres.
