A man breaks into house of the Count de Gesvres one night. He steals nothing. The man is shot, but his body cannot be found. A girl's body is found by the sea. It is the Count's niece! Add to all of this a strange kidnapping and an art student who seems to know more than the police, and you have a puzzling mystery. And it all seems connected to two things: an old chapel called the Hollow Needle and the man, Lupin, king of thieves!
