Description


"Pooh A heap of uninteresting twaddle " "What Your present of fifty thousand francs to Nicolas Dugrival's wife Do you call that uninteresting? And what about the way in which you solved the puzzle of the three pictures?" Lupin laughed: "Yes, that was a queer puzzle, certainly. I can suggest a title for you if you like: what do you say to The Sign of the Shadow?" "And your successes in society and with the fair sex?" I continued. "The dashing Ars ne's love-affairs ... And the clue to your good actions? Those chapters in your life to which you have so often alluded under the names of The Wedding-ring, Shadowed by Death, and so on ... Why delay these confidences and confessions, my dear Lupin?... Come, do what I ask you ... " It was at the time when Lupin, though already famous, had not yet fought his biggest battles; the time that preceded the great adventures of The Hollow Needle and 813. He had not yet dreamt of annexing the accumulated treasures of the French Royal House 1] nor of changing the map of Europe under the Kaiser's nose: he contented himself with milder surprises and humbler profits, making his daily effort.
