5.0 out of 5 stars Drags you right in to the centre of the story, 5 Mar. 2012

This review is from: Raffles: The Gentleman Thief (Kindle Edition)
With a renewed interest in Sherlock Holmes since the release of the BBC series and the films, `Raffles: The Gentleman Thief' brings an alter-ego of Holmes back to life. It's great to see Raffles in contrast to Holmes, he is a darker character leading a life of secret criminality and finding pleasure in women, whisky and cricket. Yet he is intriguing as his lifestyle contrasts often with his manner. He is courteous and polite, especially with his companion `Bunny', and he is as the title depicts him a gentleman, which makes him all the more intriguing. The plot holds just enough action for me and the balance between this and the descriptive settings is well judged. The smoky streets filled with horse and carriages and pick pocketing street urchins pull you right into the story and I feel as though I am walking through old London with Bunny. I'm interested in how Bunny and a person such as Raffles might have met but love the portrait of Raffles as seen through his eyes.
