Arsene Lupin


Mademoiselle Germaine Gournay-Martin tidak pernah menyangka bahwa tunangannya, Duke of Charmerace, yang telah pergi selama kurang lebih 10 tahun akan kembali. Maka dirancanglah sebuah pesta pernikahan yang sangat mewah antara putri sang jutawan dengan bangsawan eksentrik. Sayangnya, rencana pernikahan ini dirusak oleh kedatangan Arsene Lupin, sang pencuri baik hati, yang membeberkan rencananya mencuri mahkota Princesse de Lamballe, harta paling berharga milik ayah Germaine, di malam sebelum pernikahan. Namun, tidak ada rencana yang sempurna. Bahkan untuk seorang secerdik Lupin. Apalagi jika berhubungan dengan wanita cantik yang mampu mencuri hati si pencuri cerdik.

Arsene Lupin, si pencuri cerdik, diperkenalkan pertama kali oleh Maurice LeBlanc pada tahun 1905. Kelihaian dan kecerdikannya membuat ia menjadi tokoh pencuri terkenal dan kebanggaan Perancis. Kehebatannya seringkali disamakan dengan tokoh detektif nomor satu Inggris, Sherlock Holmes. Serial Arsene Lupin banyak diterjemahkan ke dalam bentuk film, komik, games, animasi, dan drama.

Maurice Leblanc

It was half-past four; M. Desmalions, the Prefect of Police, was not yet back at the office. His private secretary laid on the desk a bundle of letters and reports which he had annotated for his chief, rang the bell and said to the messenger who entered by the main door:

"Monsieur le Préfet has sent for a number of people to see him at five o'clock. Here are their names. Show them into separate waiting-rooms, so that they can't communicate with one another, and let me have their cards when they come."

The messenger went out. The secretary was turning toward the small door that led to his room, when the main door opened once more and admitted a man who stopped and leaned swaying over the back of a chair.

"Why, it's you, Vérot!" said the secretary. "But what's happened? What's the matter?"

Inspector Vérot was a very stout, powerfully built man, with a big neck and shoulders and a florid complexion. He had obviously been upset by some violent excitement, for his face, streaked with red veins and usually so apoplectic, seemed almost pale.

"Oh, nothing. Monsieur le Secrétaire!" he said.

"Yes, yes; you're not looking your usual self. You're gray in the face.... And the way you're perspiring...."

Inspector Vérot wiped his forehead and, pulling himself together, said:

"It's just a little tiredness.... I've been overworking myself lately: I was very keen on clearing up a case which Monsieur Desmalions had put in my hands. All the same, I have a funny sort of feeling—"

"Will you have a pick-me-up?"

"No, no; I'm more thirsty."

"A glass of water?"

"No, thank you."

"What then?"

"I should like—I should like—"
