After failing to rob the Kentucky Derby, Lupin runs from the authorities and disappears in the Hudson River. Inspector Zenigata ordered a full search in the river. But little does he know is Lupin isn't at all in the Hudson River, he's in fact making a foolproof plan in cracking the Metropolitan Bank's safe with the help of Jigen. It's a slow and risky process because it has floor sensors on the floor of the safe. So Lupin and Jigen must not touch the floor at all. One slip and the alarm will go off. Written by J LeGault
