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.
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.

Raffles is a gentleman thief who can't help himself from stealing valuable jewelry. With the aid of Bunny Manders, he continues to elude Scotland Yard.
