Dear, Sumalsn, I have the book you talked about. I read so long ago I do not remember too much of it. I do remember I liked it better then the pastiches about Raffles I have read. I had developed an affection for Raffles and i was sorry about the ending. I was hoping to read more. Ron aka the Game is Afoot. I am glad to be talking with a brother member of the Sherlock Holmes Society of India. I hope you and the society are doing well and enjoying good health. Ron aka One for whom is always Afoot.On 4/18/2017 12:30 AM, sumalsn wrote:
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”.
