“You have yet to discover that you are dealing with one who can hold her own against the world!” Murder on an omnibus? Marriage in a prison? Mysterious disappearances?

Not long after, he becomes acquainted with Mademoiselle Dedieu and falls in love with her. Hugh is intent on marrying her, against the staunch advice of his friend John Egerton. John tries to warn Hugh away from Valérie, but, unbeknownst to Hugh, John’s very freedom rests in Valérie’s hands. Though both Valérie and John think they have successfully kept Hugh in the dark about their secrets, fate intervenes and Hugh uncovers evidence that tips him off to his fiancée’s unsavory past.

Caught in the Net Audiobook

Caught in the Net

Author: émile Gaboriau Narrator: Stefan Rudnicki Release Date: August 2020

“Can it be true,” she continued, “that scoundrels exist in our country who are viler than the most cowardly murderers—men who trade in the shameful secrets that they have learned, and batten upon the money they earn by their odious trade? I heard of such creatures before, but declined to believe it; for I said to myself that such an idea only existed in the unhealthy imaginations of novel writers.”—Émile Gaboriau Caught in the Net centers on two young, penniless men who become trapped in a net of corruption and deception. Andre, a painter, is in love with Sabine, but they must meet in secret for Sabine comes from a noble family and Andre must prove his worth in society before they are able to marry. Monsieur Mascarin, a master criminal who obscures his dealings behind the facade of an employment agency, is also concerned with the marital status of Sabine, and while he wants to prevent her impending engagement to the man picked by her parents, it is not Andre he desires her to marry. Meanwhile Paul, a composer, is destitute and on the brink of starvation when a neighbor suggests he pays a visit to M. Mascarin’s employment agency. M. Mascarin lifts Paul out of his impoverished existence only to use him as a pawn in his own treacherous game. For those looking for more mysteries from Émile Gaboriau, The Mystery of Orcival is available on audio from Blackstone Publishing and Skyboat Media.

Billion Dollar Hollywood Heist: The A-List Kingpin and the Poker Ring That Brought down Tinseltown

Author: Dylan Howard, Houston Curtis Narrator: Joe Barrett, Stefan Rudnicki Release Date: August 2020

“Right out of the gate, the entire game was designed to empty the pockets of those rich, celeb-loving LA suckers.”—Houston Curtis Leonardo DiCaprio. Alex Rodriguez. Tobey Maguire. Affleck. Damon. Cassavetes. What do these people have in common? Not just fame and fortune; all these men are also alumni of the ultra-exclusive, high-stakes poker ring that inspired Aaron Sorkin’s Oscar-nominated film, Molly’s Game. But Houston Curtis, the card shark who cofounded the game with Tobey Maguire, knows that Sorkin’s is the whitewashed version. In Billion Dollar Hollywood Heist, Curtis goes all-in, revealing the true story behind the game. From its origins with Maguire to staking DiCaprio’s first game, installing Molly Bloom, avoiding the hookers and blow down the hall, and weathering the FBI investigation that left Curtis with a lien on his house—this is the no-holds-barred account of the world’s most exclusive Texas hold ’em game from the man who started it—with all the names and salacious details that Molly’s Game left out. With the insider appeal of Rounders, more A-listers than Ocean’s 11, and the excitement of The Sting, Billion Dollar Hollywood Heist is the untold, insider’s story that makes Molly’s Game look tame.

The Motion of Light in Water: Sex and Science Fiction Writing in the East Village Audiobook

The Motion of Light in Water: Sex and Science Fiction Writing in the East Village

Author: Samuel R. Delany Narrator: Stefan Rudnicki Release Date: July 2020

Born in New York City’s black ghetto Harlem at the start of World War II, Samuel R. Delany married white poet Marilyn Hacker right out of high school. The interracial couple moved into the city’s new bohemian quarter, the Lower East Side, in summer 1961. Through the decade’s opening years, new art, new sexual practices, new music, and new political awareness burgeoned among the crowded streets and cheap railroad apartments. Beautifully, vividly, insightfully, Delany calls up this era of exploration and adventure as he details his development as a black gay writer in an open marriage, with tertiary walk-ons by Bob Dylan, Stokely Carmichael, W. H. Auden, and James Baldwin, and a panoply of brilliantly drawn secondary characters.

Discover the many faces of Arsène Lupin as you’ve never seen them before in this original compilation from Skyboat Media and Blackstone Publishing. Arsène Lupin boldly makes a name for himself in “Madame Imbert’s Safe” as he attempts to steal from a couple who may be hiding more than just money, and flaunts his keen eye as he traces a cold case in “The Queen’s Necklace.” In “The Arrest of Arsène Lupin,” passengers onboard a transatlantic steamer fear for their valuables when the captain announces that Arsène Lupin has snuck onto the ship … and he could be disguised as anyone. In “Sherlock Holmes Arrives Too Late,” Lupin goes head-to-head with Holmes, but someone from Lupin’s past may get in the way. Just when it seems like Lupin is in a criminal league all his own, Herlock Sholmes appears. Similar to the famous English detective (but, owing to the complaints of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, possessing an entirely different name), Sholmes travels to Paris to solve the case of the stolen blue diamond. Monsieur Lupin must employ all his ingenuity to avoid arrest and protect his reputation as the greatest thief the world has ever known. With daring escapes and intricate heists, this compilation showcases Lupin at his most cunning—and his most outrageous Full contents: Introduction by Alison Belle Bews - “The Arrest of Arsène Lupin” - “The Escape of Arsène Lupin” - “Madame Imbert’s Safe” - “The Black Pearl” - “Sherlock Holmes Arrives Too Late” - “The Queen’s Necklace” - “Lottery Ticket No. 514” - “The Blue Diamond” - “Herlock Sholmes Opens Hostilities” - “Light in the Darkness” - “An Abduction” - “The Second Arrest of Arsène Lupin”

Lois the Witch, and Other Gothic Tales

Author: Elizabeth Gaskell Narrator: Gabrielle De Cuir, Juliet Mills, Justine Eyre, Stefan Rudnicki Release Date: June 2020

In this original collection from Skyboat Media and Blackstone Publishing, Elizabeth Gaskell showcases the height of gothic fiction’s ability to delight in the otherworldly and to dig deep into what truly haunts us. Set against the backdrop of the Salem witch trials, “Lois the Witch” reveals much about the complicity of mankind. Recently orphaned, Lois is forced to leave the English parsonage that had been her home and sail to America. Though she is a God-fearing and honest girl, it seems her identity as the strange, new, English girl is all anyone can see and she becomes a target for the superstitious townsfolk. In “The Grey Woman” we follow a young woman who learns the true nature of her new husband and is forced to flee their isolated home. In “Curious, if True” we are given a peek into a party attended by some very familiar fairy-tale figures. And finally, in “The Doom of the Griffiths” we must wait and see if the prophecy of an old family curse will be fulfilled. A collaborator and friend of Charles Dickens and Wilkie Collins, Elizabeth Gaskell is a leading figure in Victorian literature.
