The Third Foot – Eugène François Vidocq (Bonus Episode)

This month’s bonus episode takes us back to our episode on the world’s worst detective where we encountered a truly remarkable French icon: Eugène François Vidocq. A classic case of a 19th century man living several lives in one he was a career criminal, spy, master of disguise, fencer, paramour, soldier, policeman, private detective, novelist, businessman and self-mythologiser.

Sit back, relax and enjoy the biography of a staggeringly industrious, intelligent and dangerous man.
