Fantômas by Pierre Souvestre( Book )

82 editions published between 1911 and 2009 in 10 languages and held by 637 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A noblewoman is hacked to death in her chateau, a Russian princess is boldly robbed at a posh hotel, and a lord's lifeless body is found stuffed into a trunk. Everyone recognizes the deeds of Fantômas, a master of disguise whose daring and diabolical crimes paralyze Parisians with terror. One man has sworn to bring the phantom killer to justice: Inspector Juve, who ventures from dark alleys to brilliant salons in his relentless pursuit of the evil genius. The first volume in a series of wildly popular French thrillers, Fantômas created a sensation in pre-WWI Europe."--Back cover
Fantô̂mas by Louis Feuillade( Visual )

31 editions published between 1964 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Based on the phenomenally popular French pulp novellas, Loius Feuillade's outrageous, ambitious Fantô̂mas series became the gold standard of espionage serials in pre-WWI Europe, and laid the foundation for such immortal works as Feuillade's own Les Vampires and Fritz Lang's Dr. Mabuse films. René Navarre stars as the criminal lord of Paris, the master of disguise, the creeping assassin in black: Fantô̂mas. Over the course of five feature films, Fantô̂mas, along with his accomplices and mistresses, are pursued by the equally resourceful Inspector Juve and his friend, journalist Jerôme Fandor."--Container

"In the mode reminiscent of Sherlock Holmes and his ineradicable nemesis, the virtually immortal Professor Moriarty, Inspector Juve dedicates himself to the relentless pursuit of that evil genius Fantomas. He is, as they say in petrified Paris, 'Nothing ... Everything .. Nobody ... Somebody.' And what does he do? He 'spreads terror,' diabolically, craftily beyond all imagining: slashes throats of kindly old ladies; stuffs strangled British socialites into trunks; boldly robs Russian princesses in their hotel rooms; pushes witnesses off speeding trains to their deaths. Can Juve prevail against that hellish power?"--Publishers weekly

The scourge of Paris commits his most ingenious crime yet The second installment in this groundbreaking series opens with a crime that even Inspector Juve, dedicated hunter of the archvillain Fantômas, finds impossible to believe: A woman has been murdered in the very same room the inspector was staking out not an hour before. Only an evil genius such as Fantômas could commit a crime so astonishing. But the master of disguise is dead-or is he? As Inspector Juve investigates, he encounters a host of nefarious characters, including the criminal ringleader Loupart, alias "the Square"; his charmin

Fantomas strikes again in this third installment in the intoxicating crime series. On Rue Norvins, the police find a famous heiress poisoned to death in the studio of a ceramics painter. The artist, in a state of partial paralysis, remembers nothing. These bare and baffling facts will lead newspaperman Jerome Fandor from the magnificent ballrooms of the aristocracy to the scrubby pubs of the Parisian underworld as his search for the truth uncovers ruined fortunes, desperate suicides, mistaken identities, and even romance. Never far from such evil and outrageous doings is a villain so mysterious, so extraordinary, so clever and cruel that he can only have one name: Fantomas!
