Read full description of the books:
This was a good one. The deceptions are so many layers thick now. Fantomas is in jail because... in the last book he was posing as the American detective Tom Bob. Just before he was outed by Juve, he escaped. Now he's living in London, on the Secret Supreme Council of Scotland Yard, still in the guise of Tom Bob. But bec Tom Bob cannot be publicly known, outside of the other members of the Supreme Council, he is living as Garrick, a London dentist. Then Garrick is accused of murdering his wife, who is really Lady Beltham, Fantomas' old wife, and condemned to die as Garrick. So we're at: the alter-ego of the alter-ego of a super-criminal whose true identity is unknown is waiting for his execution, and only his wife (who's left the country because she found out he was having an affair) can save him. This is a pretty intimate look at Fantomas... the most intimate yet, where Inspector Juve is visiting him in prison and striking deals with him to find out the location of Fandor... good one, Messieurs Allain and Souvestre.

Read information about the authorMarcel Allain (1885-1970) was a French writer mostly remembered today for his co-creation with Pierre Souvestre of the fictional arch-villain and master criminal Fantômas.
The son of a Parisian bourgeois family, Allain studied law before becoming a journalist. He then became the assistant of Souvestre, who was already a well-known figure in literary circles. In 1909, the two men published their first novel, Le Rour. Investigating Magistrate Germain Fuselier, later to become a recurring character in the Fantômas series, appears in the novel.
Then, in February 1911, Allain and Souvestre embarked upon the Fantômas book series at the request of publisher Arthème Fayard, who wanted to create a new monthly pulp magazine. The success was immediate and lasting.
After Souvestre’s death in February 1914, Allain continued the Fantômas saga alone, then launched several other series, such as Tigris, Fatala, Miss Téria and Férocias, but none garnered the same popularity as Fantômas.
