32 Caliber

by Donald McGibeny

A surprisingly easy book to read. McGibeny's prose attracted me immediately. Very entertaining.

Chroniquing the hystory of French crime/suspense/thriller literature, the French writers Boileau-Narcejac once wrote that in the period "between LeBlanc and Simenon, there is nobody".

The Extraordinary Adventures of Arsène Lupin, Gentleman-Burglar

by Maurice LeBlanc

This is the first of Lupin's books. Here, the character is introduced, and his exploits as an international bandit, are best shown.
I read it about 40 years ago. I cannot guess whether these stories would sound today as engrossing as they were to me. But give them a try; after all, Arsene Lupin is the grandfather, and in a sense the greatest, of all white-glove thieves.

The Problem of Cell 13

by Jacques Futrelle

This is a classic of all times, and probably Futrelle´s best known story. It deserves to be read.
The hero accepts to be locked in cell 13 to win a wage: he should escape before the day of his "execution".
The author, Jacques Futrelle, died in the Titanic disaster.
