The Gentleman Thief

(2012)
(A book in the Raffles series)
A Novella by

 
 
Raffles, the famous cricketer and amateur cracksman, is back in an original adventure. Harry "Bunny" Manders, Raffles' biographer and accomplice, recounts the tale of the time they broke into the bookshop, Hatchard's of Piccadilly. Their mission? To steal a letter, formally owned by one Rene d'Aramis, which if published could compromise a prominent member of the government.

Yet, even more intriguing than their employment is their employer - a certain Mr Sherlock Holmes of 221b Baker Street. How will the master criminal fare against the legendary detective?

In this stunning re-creation of the classic Raffles stories, Richard Foreman brings one of the most famous characters in literature vividly back to life.

This brilliant novella will be enjoyed by anyone who has read the original Raffles stories, as well as by fans of Sherlock Holmes, and historical fiction.

It has been widely praised.
