Mr. Kesselbach stopped short on the threshold of the sitting-room, took his secretary's arm and, in an anxious voice, whispered "Chapman, some one has been here again."
"Surely not, sir," protested the secretary. "You have just opened the hall-door yourself; and the key never left your pocket while we were lunching in the restaurant."
"Chapman, some one has been here again,"

One of the most famous Arsene Lupin's stories. The book is about Arsene Lupin's investigation about the encryption "803" and "Apo on" which can affect on the whole lands of France and Germany, and during his investigation, he is going to fight against the evil murderer. The book was absolutely exciting in the sense of the way story develops and especially at the ending of the story. The book was also one of the best mystery books I've ever read, and from this point of view, I would like to recom ...more
Semua orang tahu bahwa Arsene Lupin, The Gentleman Thief, tak pernah mengambil nyawa orang. Namun, kartu nama Lupin yang ditemukan di lokasi kejadian menjadikannya tersangka utama pembunuhan dan perampokan terhadap Mr. Kesselbach .
Tidaklah mengherankan bila seluruh Paris kemudian menjadi gempar. Masyarakat mulai menuntut kebenaran dan tindakan tegas dari pihak berwajib. Para komandan kepolisian bersama sang perdana menteri mulai merencanakan penangkapan Lupin sesegera mungkin untuk meredakan ke
Lupin is back after apparently dying in the assault on the hollow needle in the previous novel - but this time, he appears to be a murderer!

As in all the Lupin novels there are disguises and confusions, but there's a hardness to this book that haven't been in the earlier books - there's a murderer loose who appears to be framing Lupin for his crimes. Lupin enters the fray and embarks on an adventure that opens as apparently a jewellery theft gone wrong and end with the blackmailing of one of Eur

Mr Kesselbach un collectionneur de diamant, est retrouvé mort dans sa chambre, ligoté sur une chaise, sur le bureau, la carte d'Arsène Lupin. Arsène est-il devenu un meutrier ? Le commissaire Lenormand mène l'enquête, mais les preuves disparaissent au fur et à mesure qu'il avance. Le tueur est toujours dans l'hôtel. Tour à tour, plusieurs de ses collègues policiers sont retrouvés morts, tous de la même façon que Kesselbach, d'un coup de couteau dans la gorge. Le tueur échappe à la police... Qui

It's not difficult to stay with this book all the way through, but when you take anything but a cursory glance at it you can't help noticing it's shoddy construction. It's your typical adventures of a gentleman thief; one who is very full of himself, able to fool everybody else, and accomplish anything after giving it a little thought. The mystery itself is unwound in a manner that feels clunky. For example, you read about a woman's room smelling smokey, then a few pages later it is discovered t ...more
Virtually every character in this book has 2, 3, or 4 pseudonyms. Many of them appear to be completely separate people, until a moment of unveiling, then followed by a subsequent unveiling, and sometimes another. I will admit that, at points, I lost track of who was who.

Also notable for having possibly the highest ellipse-to-word ratio of any book I have ever read.
Je ne sais pas exactement pourquoi je ne pouvais pas m'accrocher à ce bouquin. (Est-ce qu'on peut dire ça?) mes yeux nageait sur les pages et je n'arrivais pas à me concentrer.
Agréable à lire, un brin désuet. Par contre un peu frustrée car on n'a pas le fin mot de l'histoire ! À mon avis les épisodes doivent se lire dans un certain ordre (?)
Boring!!! Usually I love classic over looked novels but this one is not worth the time to read. I don't think I would read anything else by this author.
cerita yang sangat seru, di luar dugaan dan sulit di tebak akhirnya......hah!!! saat baca buku ini, bisa buat adrenalin melesat naik turun muter-muter
I really can't say much of anything about this book without spoilers, but it wasn't what I expected, and that's a good thing.

After being accused of murder, Arsene Lupin, heads the investigation himself and seeks to clear his name...

Trur nok eg forstod før Arsene kven som var motstandaren hans, men dette var jo artig så lenge det stod på.
Lupin relinquishes a very influential disguise and hunts for some very valuable letters and a murderer
Mendebarkan sampai akhir. Ending yang tak terduga. Ambisi yang membuat orang mau membunuh saudara kandungnya.
Trop alambiqué pour moi. Beaucoup trop d'nvraisamblances et de coups de théâtre à mon goût.
He is the most clever robber that the world has ever seen.
I am not sure madness works that way.
I think he is an excellent thief.
