The world’s premier thief—inspiration for the hit show Lupin—looks back on a lifetime of adventure in these tales of his outrageous exploits.
It has been a fortnight since the baroness Repstein disappeared from Paris, taking with her a fortune in jewels stolen from her husband. French detectives have chased her all over Europe, following the trail of gemstones like so many precious breadcrumbs, but she has eluded their efforts. When Arsène Lupin finds her, she will not escape so easily.
The most brilliant criminal mind in all of Europe, Lupin is not above performing the occasional good deed—especially when there is reward money at stake. In these thrilling stories, the gentleman thief outwits both policemen and criminals time and time again, always making sure to pocket something for himself.
Maurice Leblanc (1864-1941) est devenu grâce à ArséneLupin l'un des écrivains les plus populaires de France. A ses débuts, il a été soutenu par Guy de Maupassant, Léon Bloy, Jules Renard ou encore Alphonse Daudet.
