Arsene Lupin from the Author: Maurice Leblanc. Arsene Lupin is a fictional gentleman thief who appears in a series of detective fiction and crime fiction novels by the French writer Maurice Leblanc. A contemporary of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Maurice Leblanc was the creator of the character of gentleman thief Arsène Lupin who has enjoyed a popularity as long-lasting and considerable as Sherlock Holmes. Arsène Lupin is a literary descendant of Pierre Alexis Ponson du Terrail's Rocambole. Like him, he is often a force for good, while operating on the wrong side of the law. Those whom Lupin defeats, always with his characteristic Gallic style and panache, are worse villains than he. Lupin shares distinct similarities with E. W. Hornung's archetypal gentleman thief A. J. Raffles.

The Exploits Of Ars Ne Lupin from the Author: Maurice Leblanc. On a transatlantic voyage, Europe’s greatest criminal plots a daring caper The ship is several days out to sea when the telegram comes through with a warning that among the passengers is a disguised criminal: the fearsome Arsène Lupin. For months, Paris society has quaked at the name of the gentleman thief, whose manners are kind, whose tastes are exquisite, and who steals only from the best. When Lupin is spotted aboard the boat, his scandalous career appears to be finished. But in truth, it is just beginning. The moment he steps ashore, Lupin is captured by his nemesis, the detective Ganimard, and taken to France’s infamous Prison de la Santé, where Ganimard plans to lock him up and throw away the key. But no jail in the world can hold the world’s most ingenious thief for long; he has only to slip his shackles before beginning the adventure of a lifetime. This ebook features a new introduction by Otto Penzler and has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.

The Hollow Needle Further Adventures Of Arsene Lupin from the Author: Maurice Leblanc. This early work by Maurice Leblanc was originally published in 1909 and we are now republishing it with a brand new introductory biography. “The Hollow Needle: Further Adventures of Arsène Lupin” sees Lupin cross paths with the famous Holmlock in a wonderful story of disguises, love, and of course treasure. Maurice Marie Émile Leblanc was born on 11th November 1864 in Rouen, Normandy, France. He was a novelist and writer of short stories, known primarily as the creator of the fictional gentleman thief and detective, Arsène Lupin. From the start, Leblanc wrote both short crime stories and longer novels – and his lengthier tomes, heavily influenced by writers such as Flaubert and Maupassant, were critically admired, but met with little commercial success. Leblanc was largely considered little more than a writer of short stories for various French periodicals when the first Arsène Lupin story appeared. It was published as a series of stories in the magazine 'Je Sais Trout', starting on 15th July, 1905. Clearly created at editorial request under the influence of, and in reaction to, the wildly successful Sherlock Holmes stories, the roguish and glamorous Lupin was a surprise success and Leblanc's fame and fortune beckoned. In total, Leblanc went on to write twenty-one Lupin novels or collections of short stories. On this success, he later moved to a beautiful country-side retreat in Étreat (in the Haute-Normandie region in north-western France), which today is a museum dedicated to the Arsène Lupin books. He died in Perpignan (the capital of the Pyrénées-Orientales department in southern France) on 6th November 1941, at the age of seventy-six.
