Welcome back to the seventh season of Audiobook Break! This season, we're taking a journey with the mischievous and mysterious thief, Arsène Lupin. In an Earphones Award-winning performance, narrator Mark Meadows brings just the right mix of charm, wit, and debonair flair to THE EXTRAORDINARY ADVENTURES OF ARSÈNE LUPIN, GENTLEMAN-BURGLAR, nine engrossing short stories written by Maurice Leblanc, published by Dreamscape. If you're a fan of the stylish French series Lupin streaming on Netflix, starring Omar Sy as a modern-day man inspired by his literary hero, then you'll love getting to know the origins of the clever thief. 

Tune in for new chapters and suspenseful tales every Tuesday and Thursday, staring tomorrow, May 9, wherever you get your podcasts. Listen to our trailer below. 

French author Maurice Leblanc wrote his Arsène Lupin novels and short stories in the early 1900s. THE EXTRAORDINARY ADVENTURES OF ARSÈNE LUPIN, GENTLEMAN-BURGLAR, was published in 1907, and Leblanc continued writing Lupin adventures into the 1930s. Many are still available only in French, but audiobook listeners can hear some of the mysteries brought to life by talented narrators including Meadows, David Timson, B.J. Harrison, and more.

The Extraordinary Adventures of Arsene LupinMark Meadows brings the gentlemanly thief Arsène Lupin fully to life. Meadows captures the lighthearted sarcasm, subtle humor, and brilliance of Lupin, who immodestly touts his own cleverness in these nine classic short stories. Listeners will meet the gentlemanly burglar whose powers rival those of Sherlock Holmes, his contemporary. Listen for "The Escape of Arsène Lupin," a tale of Lupin outwitting the authorities. In "Sherlock Holmes Arrives too Late" we hear Lupin solve the mystery before Holmes has a chance. Meadows ensures that Lupin is a likeable criminal with quiet assurance and a believable moral code.
