A collection of stories by

 
 
Richard Foreman's acclaimed series of Raffles stories, which gave life again to the gentleman thief and cricketer, are here collected in one volume, Raffles: The Complete Innings.

Full of wit, crimes and romance the books can be read individually, or together they form a story that proves even greater than the sum of its parts.

With appearances from Sherlock Holmes, Dr Watson, C. B. Fry and Lord Rosebery, among others, Richard Foreman's Raffles stories were described by The Spectator magazine as "classy, humorous and surprisingly touching tales of cricket, friendship and crime."

Raffles: The Complete Innings contains the following stories:

Raffles: The Gentleman Thief
Raffles: Bowled Over
Raffles: A Perfect Wicket
Raffles: Caught Out
Raffles: Stumped
Raffles: Playing On

Richard Foreman's Raffles Series has been widely praised:

'A capital story! Strong characters, sparkling dialogue, a plot with a twist as the gentleman thief plies his trade again. Devotees of the original stories will rejoice at his return: new fans will greet a fresh hero and wait impatiently for more adventures. Raffles, burglar extraordinaire, master cricketer, welcome back to The Albany!' - David Dickinson, author of The Lord Powerscourt Mysteries

'This story is not only a joy because of the wonderful characterizations of Raffles and Bunny, but the rest of the ensemble is both amusing and full of personality. I found myself often laughing with Raffles and cringing with Bunny at the various people they encounter. The casual mention of real people like H.G.Wells, Winston Churchill and the famous sportsman C.B.Fry - here a friend of Raffles - naturally brings authenticity to the story, and you really do feel like you're witnessing history first hand.' - Dawn, author of The Baker Street Babes
