Arsène Lupin, gentleman-thief / Maurice Leblanc ; introduction and notes by Michael Sims.
Förlag: Penguin Books
Serietitel: Penguin classics
"The poor and innocent have nothing to fear from him; often they profit from his spontaneous generosity. The rich and powerful, and the detective who tries to spoil his fun, however, must beware. They are the target of Lupin's mischief and tomfoolery. A masterful thief turned detective, his plans frequently evolve into elaborate plots. These stories - the best of the Lupin series - are outrageous, melodramatic, and literate, and they sparkle with amusing banter."--book jacket.
