Edmund is alone.  He has only been in this country for a few short weeks.  He, his sister and aunt have traveled from England to Providence, Rhode Island in search of his mother.  His mother has been gone for a year now and his aunt has received a message that she needs help.  Three days ago, Edmund's aunt left to meet someone.  She hasn't returned.  And now his sister has disappeared.  No one will help him.  No one except the mysterious Mr. Dupin.  The man is very strange.  He is either a drunk or insane.  Maybe he's both.  But Edmund has no one else.  As the two search the city for clues, they get more and more involved with people and events around Providence.  Will they ever find Edmund's family?  And just who is this mysterious Mr. Dupin?  And why does he sometimes call himself Edgar Allan Poe?
