5.0 out of 5 stars Short, But Superb., 2 May 2012
This review is from: Raffles: Stumped (Kindle Edition)
Superb. Although short there's barely a paragraph - or sentence - wasted in this book. Whether you guess the ending or not, you'll have fun getting there. People tempted by pay day loans should read this book, as well as fans of Victorian crime stories.
Will check out the subsequent adventures of Raffles and Bunny too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Satire, 10 May 2012
This review is from: Raffles: Stumped (Kindle Edition)
Once again attention is paid to the links between historical accuracy and the present. Bunny, like many today, is forced to accept a "quick quid" from a money lender. The adventure that unfolds from this action is as nail biting and exciting as those that precede it, even though the story is short.

For me, what's most enjoyable about this tale in particular is the strength of the friendship between Raffles and Bunny, and the extent to which their `adventures' take place to help one another.

Both touching and thrilling, a great read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Biting and amusing, 28 Nov 2012
This review is from: Raffles: Stumped (Kindle Edition)
After reading with enthusiasm 'Raffles: A GentlemanTthief' and 'Raffles: Bowled Over', I could not wait to start a new adventure.

Raffles Stumped is a short but entertainig tale. I found myself laughing out loud at the knowing wit of the hero and the in jokes related to our age. In this story Bunny is heavily in debt and to make matters worse he is forced to pay off a loan to the greedy moneylender - Alexander Cardinal, nicknamed "Shylock".

Once again the strength of the friendship between Raffles and Bunny conquers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superior Short Fiction, 18 May 2012
This review is from: Raffles: Stumped (Kindle Edition)
Raffles: Stumped may be shorter but it is just as entertaining as the other Raffles stories. Showing his kinder side Raffles offers to help his old friend Bunny out of a bad situation with a money lender. Raffles is hours late to the meet however and leaves everyone in anticipation as to whether he will ever arrive with the money. This is superior short fiction.
