Vidocq : the personal memoirs of the first great detective by Eugène François Vidocq( Book )

156 editions published between 1828 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 301 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Criminal exploits, secret agent intrigue, and clever disguises fill the pages of Francois Eugene Vidocq's memoirs. A legendary figure in history, Vidocq is known as the first detective and an inspiration to great writers such as Honore de Balzac, Victor Hugo, and Edgar Allen Poe. As a player in the criminal underworld, Vidocq is a master of disguises and accomplished thief, eventually turning his unlawful talents toward catching criminals as the first French chief of secret police. Playing both sides of the law, Vidocq's life highlights the blurry line between law enforcement and the criminals they pursue. Vidocq has a knack for finding trouble throughout his topsy-turvy life, getting into one hot situation after another, often finding himself behind bars, only to escape the first chance he gets. This book will take you on a whirlwind tour of 1830s France, including the circus stage, pirate ships, prison cells, and beautiful women's boudoirs. Vidocq's life story is unforgettable, and includes some of the best crime stories and juicy tales ever written
