Summary
First published in 1905, A Thief in the Night is the third collection of stories detailing the exploits and intrigues of gentleman thief A.J. Raffles in late Victorian England. In public a popular sportsman, in private a cunning burglar with a weakness for valuable jewelery, Arthur Raffles, with the help of his side-kick Bunny Manders, always manages to thwart the investigations of Scotland Yard's Inspector Mackenzie. Popular in its day, this is the last collection of short stories about E.W. Hornung's most famous character - followed only by a novel, Mr. Justice Raffles
