For those of you who enjoy the personal moments, I’ve decided to begin to release those stories as a special feature you can access in the Classic Tales app. Open up today’s episode in the Classic Tales app, and you can hear all about how Agatha Christie’s “Evil Under the Sun” is integrated into our family’s culture.

One thing before we begin today’s story – the reason that I chose to produce this book is because Arsene Lupin is largely unknown in America. As I’ve been at this for some time, I’ve been amazed at the volume of material that is absolutely incredible, but largely unknown. I’m not sure why that is. For whatever reason, I’m glad we can enjoy a good Lupin heist now and again.

And now, The Hollow Needle, Part 6 of 7, by Maurice Leblanc.
