As a youth, I loved Arsene Lupin. I recall stories depicting him as brilliant and mischievous, with a light-hearted, genteel approach to fleecing his victims, who usually deserved their fates. That is not the character I encountered in The Hollow Needle. Far from a gentleman thief, Lupin comes across as more of a master criminal in the mode of Moriarty or a Bond villain.
The real hero of this tale turns out to be the young man who tries to track Lupin down. It was a little surprising, as I expected Lupin to hold my sympathies, not this new character. Other problems with the novel: How many times can you fool the same person by wearing a fake beard or different clothes?
Other problems I can't mention here, lest they spoil the ending for people who decide to read it. It's a selection of "greatest hits," packed with delightful stories that feature Arsene Lupin as most people think of him. I should have just read those and quit while I was ahead.

The original Arsene Lupin was first published in written by Maurice Leblanc. I was under the impression this was the first book in the series but now I'm thinking it's the third and the first does not appear to be available on Kindle. The book gets off to a very slow start. Lupin sends a letter to M.
Gournay-Martin, a millionaire whom Lupin has robbed once before. The letter declares Lupin's intention to rob him again the following day stealing among other things his most valuable possession, the Coronet of Princess de Lamballe. Gournay-Martin's best efforts Lupin makes good on his boast and most of the rest of the book is spent at Gournay-Martin's mansion as the Lupin obsessed Detective-Inspector Guerchard, Inspector Formery and Gournay-Martin's soon to be son-in-law the Duke of Charmerace try to piece together how the audacious crime was committed.
The police and detectives comb the estate looking for clues, trying to determine if Lupin had help from the staff and figure out whether the crime was actually even committed by the actual Arsene Lupin. After some research I determined that this third novel was apparently originally written as a play which makes sense since the story would only require two sets which is good for a play with a limited budget.

The noise was repeated twice over, clearly enough to be distinguished from the medley of vague sounds that formed the great silence of the night and yet too faintly to enable her to tell whether it was near or far, within the walls of the big country house, or outside, among the murky recesses of the park MP3 Download Download mp3 files for each chapter of this book in one zip file Wikipedia — Hollow Needle.
