The story so far: Young Beautrelet has uncovered a plot of Arsene Lupin’s to steal certain valuable paintings, and replacing them with copies. During the heist, a man was shot while trying to escape. Beautrelet deduced that the man shot was Arsene Lupin himself, and tracked him to a crypt beneath a great altar stone. However, in chipping away at the altar to gain access to the secret refuge, a great stone fell, and when the dust cleared, the body of Arsene Lupin was discovered - absolutely crushed.

And now, The Hollow Needle, Part 4 of 7, by Maurice Leblanc.
