    A selection of the very best adventures of Arsène Lupin, France's most famous gentleman thief

    The poor and the innocent have nothing to fear from suave trickster and master of disguise Lupin; often they profit from his spontaneous generosity. The rich and powerful, and those who try to spoil his fun, however, must beware. They are the target of Lupin's mischief. With plans that frequently evolve into elaborate plots, Lupin is the most entertaining criminal genius in literature.

    These stories include 'The Queen's Necklace' and 'Arsène Lupin in Prison'
