Witty and urbane, Lupin stole from the rich through elaborate capers and gave to the poor in bursts of generosity. In one adventure, Lupin manages to rob a set of prize paintings while he is in prison through a series of delightful but plausible twists. In another tale, he pits himself against Sherlock Holmes (whose name was changed to Herlock Sholmes when Sir Arthur Conan Doyle objected).
Walter Covell adopts a genteel British accent in performing LeBlanc’s formal diction, switching capably to a Parisian accent in his pronunciation of French names and places.
The stories include, "The Arrest of Arsene Lupin", "Arsene Lupin in Prison", "The Escape of Arsene Lupin", "The Mysterious Traveller", "The Queen's Necklace", "The Seven of Hearts", "Madame Imbert's Safe", "The Black Pearl", and "Sherlock Holmes Arrives Too Late".

How I do love the clever Arsine Lupine! The book is not one long mystery, but several smaller stories about the con-man. The narration is good and the content is appropriate for all readers.

An Old Favorite Made Better
I had read and liked several of the Arsene Lupin stories, so I was happy to find it in audio form, but I never expected it to be so good. The narration was delightful, making this classic as fresh and lively as when it was written. A must-have for lovers of old-fashioned mystery and adventure stories.
