The trilogy begins with 1841 short story, "The Murders in the Rue Morgue" which follows Dupin trying to solve a double murder in Paris.The sequel, 1842's, "The Mystery of Marie Roget", again follows Dupin as he tries to solve the murder of Marie Roget, whose body is found in a local Paris river. The final installment in the series, 1844's "The Purloined Letter", follows Dupin's attempt to recover a letter stolen from a private sitting room.
