Bath Bloodhounds’ September ’21 Book

The Bath Bloodhounds logo

On the 30th of September the group will be discussing ‘Arsene Lupin – Gentleman Thief’, by Maurice LeBlanc. Where possible we will be reading the translation by Alexander Teixeira de Mattos.

The suave adventures of a gentleman rogue—a French Thomas Crown Created by Maurice LeBlanc during the early twentieth century, Arsene Lupin is a witty confidence man and burglar, the Sherlock Holmes of crime. 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 Arsene’s mischief and tomfoolery. A masterful thief, his plans frequently evolve into elaborate capers, a precursor to such cinematic creations as Ocean’s Eleven and The Sting. Sparkling with amusing banter, these stories—the best of the Lupin series—are outrageous, melodramatic, and literate.
