Book Excerpt: 
. . .On the very morning of the crime, while M. Filleul was pursuing his examination before a few privileged persons, I had the fortunate inspiration to glance at the runaway's cap, before the sham flyman came to change it. The hatter's name was enough, as you may imagine, to enable me to find the clue that led to the identification of the purchaser and his address.

The next morning, Ganimard called at 36, Rue Marbeuf. After questioning the concierge, he made him open the door of the ground-floor flat on the right, a very comfortable apartment, elegantly furnished, in which, however, he discovered nothing beyond some cinders in the fireplace. Two friends had come, four days earlier, to burn all compromising papers.

But, just as he was leaving, Ganimard passed the postman, who was bringing a letter for M. de Vaudreix. That afternoon, the public prosecutor was informed of the case and ordered the letter to be given up. It bore an American postmark . . . Read More

A pretty naive novel, very much focused on sensational not on credibility. It is definitively a recipe for any modern commercial success. And when there are also famous detectives involved, it is hard to miss it.

These kind of novels usually don't have an elaborate premise. It is consisting of the...more

Un texte que les amateurs de Leblanc considèrent comme un joyau. Lupin (et l'auteur) à son meilleur. Une aventure moins "flamboyante", mais incroyablement complexe et beaucoup plus étonnante que d'autres. Un texte rapide, soutenu, qui seulement par endroits montre avoir été conçu pour une publica...more

Delizioso "ripescaggio" di un testo introvabile, che gli amanti di Leblanc considerano una vera pietra miliare. Lupin (e l'autore) al suo massimo, in un'avventura meno 'flamboyante' ma incredibilmente articolata e assai più stupefacente di altre. Un testo rapido, sostenuto, che solo qui e là rive...more

génial !!! au sens propre du terme

I wouldn't wish to be a love interest of Arsène on my worst enemy cause she would have a life span of Dylan Dog girl - either that or she would be used and forgotten. Sometimes both. He just plows through everything, shedding a tear here and there and then saying that what happened last year actu...more

França, início do século XX.

Um assassinato é cometido no castelo de Ambrumésy,  nem a arma nem o assassino, que havia sido alvejado ao fugir por Raymonde de Saint-Véran (sobrinha do proprietário do castelo) são encontrados.  Um estudante, Isidore Beautrelet, se interessa pelo caso e terá que enfr...more

I have enjoyed several Leblanc titles very much (Confessions of Arsene Lupin and Extraordinary Adventures of Arsene Lupin), but this is a weaker entry in the series. The book opens up with a robbery and a murder. Gentleman thief, Arsene Lupin, is implicated and amateur sleuth, Isidore Beatrelet,...more

Encore une super aventure d'Arsène Lupin. Et cette fin, pfiou !

Tadinya mau saya rate 3* tapi enggak jadi. Dibanding dua buku sebelumnya, sebenarnya buku ini terbilang lumayan. Terjemahannya bagus tapi saya enggak mudeng dengan ceritanya. Saya mengerti sih, cuma ya... I didn't get it. Si Lupin ini kok mudah sekali nyamar jadi orang lain. Saat saya kira orang...more

Γρήγορη ροή, μυστήριο, ιστορία, καταδίωξη, μια Γαλλία άλλης εποχής.
I'm all set!
