Raffles: Further Adventures of the Amateur Cracksmanby E. W. (Ernest William) Hornung
Unlike some other reproductions of classic texts (1) We have not used OCR(Optical Character Recognition), as this leads to bad quality books with introduced typos. (2) In books where there are images such as portraits, maps, sketches etc We have endeavoured to keep the quality of these images, so they represent accurately the original artefact. Although occasionally there may be certain imperfections with these old texts, we feel they deserve to be made available for future generations to enjoy.

More Raffles stories! A rascal who yet can fight for his country. Is he amoral or immoral? You decide. Great continuation of the first book. Clearly Raffles is still influencing popular culture with his polite manners, charm, daredevil escapades, Houdini-like talents and his taste for thievery and sport. He is a superb athlete, an appreciater of art, good wine, books and news, not immune to women and love as one might think, yet determined to live by crime and not entirely averse to violence if deemed necessary. Excellently narrated by his hapless friend Bunny, who offers enough crises of conscience between lapses, and sufficient adoration of Raffles between recriminations and remorse, to make you as fascinated by the mysterious Raffles as he is. On to the next book!
Raffles is great! A wonderful collection of short stories.
