Monsieur Lecoq (Complete) by Émile Gaboriau

Presented in the order in which they were published

Monsieur Lecoq is a genius detective created by Émile Gaboriau; arrogant, proud, a master of disguise, and known for deducing things that others cannot see. The character was apparently based on Eugène François Vidocq, a police officer who used to be a thief. Whilst the Lecoq books of Gaboriau were popular, that popularity declined with the emergence of Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes
