    Summary

    The second book in the Fantômas series by the prolific authors Marcel Allain and Pierre Souvestre (they published 32 Fantômas novels between 1911 and 1913.) Fantômas broke the mold of the Gentlemen burglars like Raffles and Arsene Lupin. He killed without compunction. His anarchic ruthlessness, especially as portrayed by silent film pioneer Louis Feuillade, made Fantômas the darling of the French avante garde, such as the artist René Magritte and novelist Robert Desnos.

    - The Exploits of Juve

    A good detective story, the narration is clear and consistent though Don W Jenkins is more like a town crier than a narrator, that he tried too hard and I found it annoying that he needed to remind us (at length) that he had narrated each chapter.
