Fine art aficionado. Master of disguise. Jewelry
expert. Historian. Gentleman. Burglar.
Arsene Lupin is all of
these and more. In 1905, Maurice Leblanc introduced his
Gentleman-burglar in the story "L'Arrestation d'Arsène
Lupin”. Shortly thereafter the stories were collected as one single
volume. In these charming adventures, Lupin orchestrates a myriad
of extravagant heists in the very face of the determined Inspector
his sparkling wit, his sharp eye for detail, and his incredible
gift of anticipation, Lupin carries off the most amazing thefts,
and never leaves a clue behind. And yet, he is ever the embodiment
of gentlemanly manners, and old-school chivalry. Take these first
adventures for a whirl, and witness how he measures up when he goes
toe to toe with the redoubtable Sherlock Holmes himself!

Unique story, great performance
From Kelly Farrow of Monrovia, California on 3/24/2016.
This story was very interesting as it wasn't a linear tale of a burglar outwitting his pursuers, as it might seem. Instead, it really forces you to pay attention as each vignette is from a different part of Lupin's life. The narration switches from person to person, though often it's Lupin in disguise! B.J. Harrison, as usual, performs very well in the reading! Good choice.
From Odd Nakland of Oslo, Norway, Norway on 6/16/2015.
Classic crime. Excellent narration.
