The book that inspired the new Netflix series, "Lupin" with Omar Sy.
The gentleman burglar and criminal mastermind, Arsene Lupin, returns in five new adventures. Paris’ very own "Prince of Thieves" is once again on the loose, armed with his trademark wit and charm. Constantly one step ahead of the police and his nemesis, Inspector Ganimard, Lupin solves a few mysteries, saves a few damsels, and even manages to pocket a small fortune for himself.
"The Two Hundred Thousand Franc Rewards!", "The Wedding Ring", "The Sign of the Shadow", "The Infernal Trap", "The Red Silk Scarf" and "Shadowed by Death" from "The Confessions of Arsene Lupin" are daring, fast-paced and a whole lot of fun.
Perfect for fans of Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes and Edgar Allan Poe's C. Auguste Dupin.

Maurice Leblanc was a French author during the late nineteenth century and early twentieth century. He lived in Paris during the Belle Epoque, and his literary legacy consists of novels and short stories. Though he wrote two well-received science fiction books, he was most famous for his gentleman thief adventure series, Arsene Lupin.
Thought to be based on the life of anarchist Marius Jacob, who had a very public trial in 1905, Lupin is a whip-smart, witty, and roguishly handsome master of disguise. Leblanc was compared to Arthur Conan Doyle throughout his career, and he even wrote a series of novellas where Lupin is introduced to and subsequently outwits the famous detective, Sherlock Holmes.
Arsene Lupin has inspired many spin-offs including the hugely successful Japanese manga series Lupin III and a new Netflix series Lupin starring Omar Sy.
