Maurice Leblanc, a writer of detective fiction during the same period as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, created Arsene Lupin, a sort of French Robin Hood. An inventive genius, a master of disguise, and an accomplished actor, Lupin operates in the choice chateaux and salons. He scorns sham and with great disdain leaves his card in a baron´s residence. The card reads, ´´Arsene Lupin, gentleman-burglar, will return when the furniture is genuine.´´ The stories include, ´´The Arrest of Arsene Lupin´´, ´´Arsene Lupin in Prison´´, ´´The Escape of Arsene Lupin´´, ´´The Mysterious Traveller´´, ´´The Queen´s Necklace´´, ´´The Seven of Hearts´´, ´´Madame Imbert´s Safe´´, ´´The Black Pearl´´, and ´´Sherlock Holmes Arrives Too Late´´. 1.

Praise for Lean for Life: ´Louise is the only one out there I trust - she´s not holier than thou, yet somehow miraculously gets my reluctant arse into gear and sometimes even keeps it there. I love that her method is NOT a diet - and is genuinely sustainable - so I can have my glass of wine and manage to avoid spending the rest of the week eating cheesy wotsits. She toughens me up without driving me round the bend with kale juice and the more depressing style of sprout. She just gets it. We all use her, because she´s discreet and funny and that´s really important´ - Emma Thompson ´Louise Parker, AKA the figure magician, has worked her magic on actors, athletes, pop stars, politicians and princesses and believes absolutely anyone can have a sensational body.´ - Glamour ´Louise Parker is one of the very few weight-loss experts worth the title.

Louise Parker really does think of everything.´ - Tatler ´Quite simply the most intelligent weight-loss programme out there.´ - Independent
