Ernest William Hornung.
Gentleman thief Raffles is daring, debonair, devilishly handsome-and a
first-rate cricketer. In these stories, the master burglar indulges his
passion for cricket and crime: stealing jewels from a country house,
outwitting the law, pilfering from the nouveau riche, and, of course,
bowling like a demon-all with the assistance of his plucky sidekick,
Bunny. Encouraged by his brother-in-law, Arthur Conan Doyle, to write a
series about a public school villain, and influenced by his own
experiences at Uppingham, E. W. Hornung created a unique form of crime
story, where, in stealing as in sport, it is playing the game that
counts, and there is always honor among thieves.
