Mark Meadows is just the right narrator to bring the charming, witty, debonair thief Arsène Lupin fully to life. Meadows captures the lighthearted sarcasm, subtle humor and brilliance of Lupin, who immodestly touts his own cleverness. In this collection of nine engrossing short stories, listeners meet the gentlemanly burglar whose powers of deduction rival those of Sherlock Holmes, his contemporary. "The Escape of Arsène Lupin" recounts how he outwits the authorities. While traveling by train under an assumed name in "The Mysterious Traveler," Lupin is robbed by a thief everyone thinks is him. In "Sherlock Holmes Arrives too Late," Lupin solves the mystery before Holmes has a chance. Meadows ensures that Lupin is a likable criminal with quiet assurance and a believable moral code. S.J.H.
