Why would someone break into the safe of a millionaire industrialist, and leave the money? Arthur B. Reeve, today on The Classic Tales Podcast.

Welcome to The Classic Tales Podcast. Thank you for listening.

We are proudly supported by our listeners. This is something I’ve done for fifteen years, now. We’ve been able to help many, many people discover authors and stories they never would have read, and be surprised and inspired. It’s free for you to listen to, but it does cost real money to make it happen. But instead of just asking for your financial support, we like to give back more.

If you enjoy the show, please sign up to be a supporter for as little as $5 a month. We’ll give you a monthly coupon code for $8 off any audiobook order. This is why we break down the larger titles on the website, so you can use three codes it you want to get The Count of Monte Cristo. It’s a great way to build out your classic audiobook library, and help so we can continue to provide this service.

Go to and become a financial supporter today. Thank you so much.

If you’re looking for another great podcast, let me direct you to Great Pods. It’s like a Rotten Tomatoes directory for podcasts – they only list shows that have been professionally reviewed, and I’m glad we made their directory. Head on over to and find your next favorite show.

We wind up September Sleuths with an introduction to the work of Arthur B. Reeve. His sleuth is Craig Kennedy, and he’s professional scientist and amateur detective, based at Columbia University. Like Augustus van Dusen from a couple of weeks ago, Kennedy also has an enthusiastic journalist in the Watson role, and can use a wide array of state-of-the-art gadgets in his detective work.

And now, The Scientific Cracksman, by Arthur B. Reeve.
