Description

With his partner in crime, Bunny Manders, Raffles preys on the rich, the greedy and the unspeakably vulgar. His talents are exercised not only in London, but as far afield as Italy, Australia, and South Africa at the height of the Boer War. The emphasis on panache, with intensifying suggestions of fallability, goes to the heart of late-Victorian attitudes and values. In this volume are all the adventures contained in "The Amateur Cracksman", "The Black Mask", and "A Thief in the Night", with an introduction and a map of London locations.show more
