Maurice Leblanc, a writer of detective fiction during the same period as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, created Arsene Lupin, a sort of French Robin Hood. An inventive genius, a master of disguise, and an accomplished actor, Lupin operates in the choice chateaux and salons. He scorns sham and with great disdain leaves his card in a baron's residence. The card reads, "Arsene Lupin, gentleman-burglar, will return when the furniture is genuine." The stories include, "The Arrest of Arsene Lupin", "Arsene Lupin in Prison", "The Escape of Arsene Lupin", "The Mysterious Traveller", "The Queen's Necklace", "The Seven of Hearts", "Madame Imbert's Safe", "The Black Pearl", and "Sherlock Holmes Arrives Too Late".weiterlesen
"Intelligent, daring, but oh what a rogue. Nothing is safe from Arsene Lupin, the intriguing, intrepid thief. Only his good friend Inspector Ganimard has managed to arrest him, but only briefly. Even Sherlock Holmes, who arrives to sort out a complicated burglary is embarrassed by Lupin's much publicized wiles. Good plots, great narration (a super job by Covell) and the wonderful Lupin create an excellent few hours of short stories." (Booklist)
