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.

    " Lupin is fucking awesome! A worthy adversary to Sherlock Holmes :D "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Portobellord | 1/11/2011

    " This is not a overarching story, but is instead a series of stories about different jobs throughout Lupin’s career including his very first robbery. Some are written in a first person account which is amusing and others are written by Lupin’s biographer. "

    " at first i thought i was getting aniem, and when it wasn't anime, i was a little sad. but then i found out, there are good things in life, um, besides anime. "

    " Good stories, sounds like it was written from a non-native English speaker at times but I liked it :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lauren | 4/8/2010

    " I found the writing infinitely more natural and refined than the Sherlock Holmes stories. "

    " Fine bedtime reading. Wish I'd discovered Lupin when I did Agatha Christie; age eight or thereabouts. I would have enjoyed the hell out of him for years before I grew up and got all critical. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Takipsilim | 12/17/2009

    " Entertaining detective yarns from fin-de-siecle France. France's answer to Sherlock Holmes. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Megan | 1/12/2009

    " This was clearly not translated by a native English speaker, which makes it incredibly charming to me. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Salford | 11/21/2008

    " Felt like the Sherlock Holmes of thieves. No wonder I didn't like it that much. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Patrick | 3/26/2008

    " An interesting series of stories, though on through the set they seem less interesting and more of the same. Still, Lupin's antics and taunts are worthwile reading. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Krista the Krazy Kataloguer | 1/5/2008

    " They don't write them like this any more! I like the character of Arsene Lupin, who breaks into a house to steal but takes nothing, leaving behind a note that says, "I will return when the antiques are genuine!" "
