The Teeth of the Tiger (1921) is a novel by Maurice Leblanc. Blending crime fiction, fantasy, and mystery, Leblanc crafts original and entertaining tales of adventure starring one of the greatest literary characters of all time - Arsène Lupine, gentleman thief. Partly based on the life of French anarchist Marius Jacob, Lupine first appeared in print in 1905 as an answer to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes.
Arsène Lupine is the world's greatest thief, an unmatched force for good whose exploits threaten the wealth and standing of France's most wicked men. In this installment of Leblanc's beloved series, Lupine uses his remarkable wit and chameleon-like ability to move undetected through aristocratic society in order to steal, trick, and cheat his way through life. Despite his criminal nature, he operates under a strict moral code, only taking from those who have taken from the poor all their lives. Don Luis Perenna is a man with a mysterious past. Known only to his closest comrades by his real name, Perenna is none other than Arsène Lupine, the gentleman thief. Named executor of the will of Cosmo Mornington, a wealthy philanthropist and a friend since the days of the Great War, Perenna is tasked with tracking down his many heirs. One by one,The Teeth of the Tiger is a tale of romance, mystery, and crime that continues to astound over a century after it was published.
With a beautifully designed cover and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of Maurice Leblanc's The Teeth of the Tiger is a classic of French literature reimagined for modern readers.
