A battle of wits between the nimblest French thief and the shrewdest British detective This volume contains two adventures which pit the gentleman thief Arsene Lupin against Sherlock Holmes, the world's most famous detective. In `The Blonde Lady', Holmes must discover the identity of a mysterious female thief who is linked to Lupin, while in `The Jewish Lamp' he finds out that the theft of a lamp containing a precious jewel conceals an astonishing secret.

While their tone is at times ironic and firmly tongue-in-cheek, the two stories in Arsene Lupin vs Sherlock Holmes bear all the hallmarks of classic detective fiction, and will put a smile on the lips and set the pulses racing of all fans of mystery and detective fiction.
