The poor and innocent have nothing to fear from him; often they profit from his spontaneous generosity. The rich and powerful, and the detective who tries to spoil his fun, however, must beware. They are the target of Arsenes mischief and tomfoolery. A masterful thief, his plans frequently evolve into elaborate capers, a precursor to such cinematic creations as Oceans Eleven and The Sting. Sparkling with amusing banter, these storiesthe best of the Lupin seriesare outrageous, melodramatic, and literate.
