'And I prayed that I would find a way to tell my most honorable friend, the Chevalier C. Auguste Dupin, the truth about how I had finally been murdered, and by whom.'

Summer, 1849. When Edgar Allan Poe travels to Paris to help his dear friend hunt down the criminal who brought the Dupin family to ruin during the French Revolution, the sleuthing duo are engaged by the prefect of police to recover the stolen letter of an infamous Parisian salonniere. Is the thief one of the French literary greats who attend her salons, or might it be Dupin's own enemy who is scheming to become the Emperor of France? Poe and Dupin are quickly embroiled in a deadly cat and mouse game that takes them to the treacherous tunnels of the city's necropolis, where few who venture into the notorious Empire of the Dead manage to return from the darkness...

MEDIA REVIEWS
Praise for Edgar Allan Poe & The Jewel of Peru: 'Street's work is richly detailed and atmospheric, with equal parts delicious strangeness and sparkling historical research.' Elle Wild, author of Strange Things Done 'Glittering and dark, this is a veritable Cabinet of Curiosities.' Philip Gross, author of T.S. Eliot prize-winner The Water Table 'Rich in colour and layered with literary texture, the jewels of Karen Lee Street's second novel in her mystery trilogy are her exquisite writing and the further development of returning characters Poe and Dupin.' Kate Mayfield, author of The Undertaker's Daughter
