Raffles is Sherlock Holmes' polar opposite, a foil for great detectives and a man with all the immoral charms of a hero-thief, plus a remarkable ability at cricket. Raffles is the godson of Robin Hood, the model for Cary Grant in To Catch a Thief, and the inspiration of Leslie Charteris' The Saint. As the great reinvention of the trickster for the 20th century, Raffles convinces readers to throw away their scruples and follow along for wit, bold adventures, and thrilling suspense.
Perhaps it's fitting that Hornung's character Raffles is often compared with Sherlock Holmes, since E.W. Hornung was the brother-in-law of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle! Download and start listening now!
