Stumped

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

 
 
Raffles, the legendary gentleman thief, returns in a sparkling new short story, first published as part with the longer e-book 'Raffles: Caught Out'.

In this tale, Harry "Bunny" Manders finds himself badly in debt. Bunny must pay off a loan to an unscrupulous moneylender, Alexander "Shylock" Cardinal, or else lose all of his assets, or worse his life. Bunny puts his faith in his best friend to save the day but can even Raffles pull off a job at such short notice - and raise such a large sum of money?

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.

Praise for Raffles: Bowled Over:

'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 - The Baker Street Babes.
