The Exploits of Juve

The Exploits of Juve by Marcel Allain
By: (1885-1969)

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.

There has been some confusion about the authors of this book. The cover credits Pierre Souvestre and Marcel Allain, but the title page lists Émile Souvestre and Marcel Allain. Pierre Souvestre (1874 1914) and Marcel Allain (1885 1969) were contemporaries, while Émile Souvestre (1806 1854) was the great uncle of Pierre and died before Marcel Allain was born.

Reviews (Rated: 3 Stars - 1 review)

Reviewer: - September 2, 2016
Subject: 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.
