Arsène Lupin Versus Herlock Sholmes – ebook
Leblanc’s creation, gentleman thief Arsene Lupin, is everything you would expect from a French aristocrat – witty, charming, brilliant, sly... and possibly the greatest thief in the world. „Arsene Lupin versus Herlock Sholmes” (Translator: George Morehead) is a collection of adventures which feature a match of wits between Lupin and Herlock Sholmes, a transparent reference to Sherlock Holmes, the hero of Conan Doyle’s detective stories. The novel consists of two closely linked novellas, in each of which the renowned English detective Herlock Sholmes is commissioned to come to Paris, accompanied as ever by amanuensis Dr. Wilson, to solve a crime that’s assumed to have at its heart the legendary figure of master criminal Arsene Lupin. For his part, Lupin relishes the challenge of crossing mental swords with the only man on earth intelligent and resourceful enough to be a worthy rival.
