What to expect

The outrageous tales of the gentleman thief Arsène Lupin

In “Two Hundred Thousand Francs Reward!,” it has been a fortnight since the baroness Repstein disappeared from Paris, taking with her a fortune in jewels stolen from her husband. French detectives have chased her all over Europe, following the trail of gemstones like so many precious breadcrumbs, but she has eluded their efforts. When Arsène Lupin finds her, she will not escape so easily. Meanwhile in “The Wedding-Ring,” a wife desperately tries to outwit a husband set on divorce and willing to use their son as a pawn. A greedy stepfather, a strange car accident, a false wedding announcement, and more are woven through the rest of these thrilling tales, in which the cunning gentleman thief outwits both policemen and criminals time and time again, always making sure to pocket something for himself.
