Book Description HTML  |   Report this book

Gentleman thief Raffles is daring, debonair, devilishly handsome--and a first-rate cricketer. In these stories, the master burglar indulges his passion for cricket and crime.

Robert

Some really good short stories. They have many parallels to Doyle's Holmes and Watson stories, except for Raffles and Bunny being gentlemen thieves instead of private detectives.


Jaki

As always, Raffles continues to delight and charm his way through pickle after pickle! I read these adventures to my children, and now my grandchildren, who also delight in the Raffles adventures!
