'Why should I work when I could steal?' Thus speaks A. J.Raffles, gentleman, the finest slow bowler of his generation and a shameless thief. When Bunny, an old school acquaintance, confesses that he will be dishonourably disgraced for writing cheques that his bank will not meet, Raffles persuades him to assist in a burglary. From that moment, Bunny is locked into a life of crime and, fortunately for his audience, recounts their adventures in a most thrilling way. The stories in this volume are 'The Ides of March', 'A Costume Piece', 'Gentleman and Players', 'Le Premier Pas', 'Wilful Murder', and 'Nine Points of the Law'.

E. W. Hornung was Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's brother in law, but Raffles is the very antithesis of Sherlock Homes - yet still a hero and one that the Victorians and succeeding generations, perhaps surprisingly, took to their hearts.

    " A brilliant book of its time, with a title that's a conversation starter in itself. It has character and expression and I nearly missed my station on the train several nights running, which is always a sign of a gripping story. I was sad when it ended. "

    " I really enjoyed these short tales with wonderfully skewed morals and dashing British wit. Been meaning to read them for years, then Raffles showed up in LOEG and then I stumbled upon this collection. For fans of Sherlock Holmes and Victorian Britain. "
