      Dear Holmesians,


      Have your read any books by EW Hornung, who is best known for writing the  A.J. Raffles series about the “gentleman thief”? 


      In 1893,EW Hornung  also became the brother-in-law of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle  when he  married Constance Doyle, the sister of Arthur Conan Doyle.


      In 1899, "The Amateur Cracksman" was published, a series of short stories about A.J. Raffles.


      The book was dedicated  to  Sir Arthur Conan Doyle: “To A.C.D. This form of flattery”.


      Regards,

      Sumalsn
