Description:

Arsene Lupin: one of the most famous and intriguing figures of French detective literature. He was created by Maurice Leblanc, a brilliant journalist, writer and storyteller, and is the hero of a total of 24 books, novels and short stories alike. The fictional gentleman thief is a master of disguise, a criminal genius and a moral figure well-set in righting a few wrongs himself when Justice can't be bothered. Fear and scandal in the French aristocracy: the "Queen's necklace" has disappeared! This priceless work of art was said to have been presented to Marie-Antoinette, Queen of France, in 1785, and it was kept by the Dreux-Soubise family for four generations. Its inexplicable disappearance is a total mystery, until a no less mysterious stranger comes up with a clever explanation. This series of audiobooks recorded by the best storytellers recaptures all the elegance and finesse of the beloved French criminal.
