In 19th-century Baltimore, Maryland, several policemen discover a murdered woman sprawled on the floor of her apartment, which was locked from the inside. While police search for the killer’s means of escape, they discover a second corpse in the chimney, later identified as the 12-year-old daughter of the first victim. A celebrated detective, Emmett Fields, is called to assist in the investigation and discovers that the crime resembles a fictional murder in a short story, “The Murders in the Rue Morgue”, that he once read.

The writer Edgar Allan Poe is brought to Fields for questioning. After finding the body of Griswold, a rival of Poe, cut in half by a pendulum (as in Poe’s story “The Pit and the Pendulum”), the pair deduce that someone is staging murders based on Poe’s stories. Edgar’s love, Emily Hamilton, is kidnapped at her father’s masquerade ball, like the one described in Poe’s “The Masque of the Red Death”. The killer taunts Poe in a note, demanding that Edgar write and publish a new story. Poe’s lodgings are burned down by people who believe he is exploiting the murders for his own journalistic ends, and he is forced to move in with Fields.
