Books Description:

The Confessions of Arsène Lupin (1913) is a collection of short stories by Maurice Leblanc. Blending crime fiction, fantasy, and mystery, Leblanc crafts original and entertaining tales of adventure starring one of the greatest literary characters of all time—Arsène Lupin, gentleman thief. Partly based on the life of French anarchist Marius Jacob, Lupin first appeared in print in 1905 as an answer to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes. Arsène Lupin is the world’s greatest thief, an unmatched force for good whose exploits threaten the wealth and standing of France’s most wicked men. In this installment of Leblanc’s beloved series, Lupin uses his remarkable wit and chameleon-like ability to move undetected through aristocratic society in order to steal, trick, and cheat his way through life. Despite his criminal nature, he operates under a strict moral code, only taking from those who have taken from the poor all their lives. When Baron Repstein, a powerful businessman, has his fortune stolen by a faithless wife, Arsène Lupin casts doubt on his tale of betrayal. Securing a deathbed confession via code from the Baron’s closest associate, Lupin makes his way to Repstein’s home, where he introduces himself and proceeds to reveal the shocking truth. Other stories in the collection include “The wedding-ring,” “The red silk scarf,” and “A Tragedy in the Forest of Morgues.” The Confessions of Arsène Lupin contains tales of romance, mystery, and crime that continue to astound over a century after they were published. With a beautifully designed cover and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of Maurice Leblanc’s The Confessions of Arsène Lupin is a classic of French literature reimagined for modern readers.

Books Description:

This early work by Maurice Leblanc was originally published in 1908 and we are now republishing it with a brand new introductory biography. "The Blonde Lady” sees Arsène Lupin (the gentleman-burglar) once again meeting his enemy, the English detective Herlock Sholmes. These two great intellects are bound in opposite directions, where one chooses to abide to the law and the other uses his power and wits to crime. 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. Leblanc spent his early education at the Lycée Pierre Corneille (in Rouen), and after studying in several countries and dropping out of law school, he settled in Paris and began to write fiction. 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. Leblanc was awarded the Légion d'Honneur - the highest decoration in France - for his services to literature. He died in Perpignan (the capital of the Pyrénées-Orientales department in southern France) on 6th November 1941, at the age of seventy-six. He is buried in the prestigious Montparnasse Cemetery of Paris.

A large inheritance is up for grabs—and a murderer is on the loose—in the series that inspired the Netflix show Lupin. When a wealthy man named Cosmo Mornington dies, he leaves an immense inheritance to any living heir that can be found, and names his dear friend Don Luis Perenna as executor. But Mornington’s heirs aren’t easy to locate. By provision of the will, if none turn up after three months, the full sum of one hundred million francs will go to Perenna himself . . . otherwise known as master thief Arsène Lupin. While the French authorities have good reason not to trust Perenna, suspicion only escalates as Mornington’s distant family members reach a series of untimely ends. But in a deadly race against time, there’s no one better suited to catch a killer than the greatest thief in the world.
