The Amateur Cracksman

The FLAME TREE COLLECTABLE CRIME CLASSICS are chosen to create a delightful and timeless home library of classic crime and mystery thrillers. Each stunning unabridged edition features deluxe cover treatments, ribbon markers, luxury endpapers and gilded edges.

In this collection of thrilling tales, E.W. Hornung upends the traditions of detective fiction, casting criminal A.J. Raffles as his ignoble hero. First published in 1898 as a series of short stories in Cassell’s Magazine, The Amateur Cracksman follows the exploits of Raffles as he robs Victorian High Society of their riches. A renowned cricket player and London socialite, Raffles is secretly an ingenious master of thievery and disguise. Assisted by friend Bunny Manders and in constant pursuit by Scotland Yard, this gentleman thief’s escapades are as compelling as they are dastardly. 

A specially commissioned biography of the author and a glossary of Victorian and Literary terms make this new edition essential for all classic crime fans!
