The Crystal Stopper or Further Adventures of Arsene Lupin, Gentleman-Burglar by Maurice Leblanc is one of the greatest masterpieces of French literature. Lupin is an enigmatic, preternatural criminal; an unstoppable thief who's planning defies any attempts at capture. This book was inspired by the Panama Canal Scandal, the largest monetary corruption scandal of the 19th century. In a gripping story centered around theft, deception, murder and blackmail, the ingenious criminal manages to stay several steps ahead of the authorities, until a thrilling final showdown has terrible consequences for one of the characters. The Crystal Stopper is very entertaining, and it is one of the best Lupin's adventures ever. If you enjoy a good detective story, a historic scandal and appreciate an elegant twist, go ahead and let Lupin steal a few hours of your time.
