Summary

Fantômas was introduced a few years after Arsène Lupin, another well-known thief. But whereas Lupin draws the line at murder, Fantômas has no such qualms and is shown as a sociopath who enjoys killing in a sadistic fashion.He is totally ruthless, gives no mercy, and is loyal to none, not even his own children. He is a master of disguise, always appearing under an assumed identity, often that of a person whom he has murdered. Fantômas makes use of bizarre and improbable techniques in his crimes, such as plague-infested rats, giant snakes, and rooms that fill with sand.The Exploits of Juve chronicles some of Juve’s adventures in pursuit of this master criminal and ends with what may be Fantomas’ revenge on the detective.(Introduction by Wikipedia and Don Jenkins)

- 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.
