Yet, even more intriguing than their employment is their employer - a certain Mr Sherlock Holmes of 221b Baker Street. How will the master criminal fare against the legendary detective?
In this stunning re-creation of the classic Raffles stories, Richard Foreman brings one of the most famous characters in literature vividly back to life.
This brilliant novella will be enjoyed by anyone who has read the original Raffles stories, as well as by fans of Sherlock Holmes, and historical fiction.
It 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
In Praise of Raffles: Bowled Over:
'This story is not only a joy because of the wonderful characterizations of Raffles and Bunny, but the ret 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
