About the Book

This collection of ten remarkable stories have Bunny telling tales of encounters from various times in his and Raffles' lives. Bunny bemoans the breakdown of his engagement in the book Out of Paradise, which he called off to save his fiancé the shame following his fall from social grace. In an effort to cheer him melancholy, Bunny suggests that the two rob the wealthy politician's estate. Following this depressing narrative, The Rest Cure is a peaceful story that centers on Bunny and Raffles as they hide away to avoid an incident with Inspector Mackenzie.
Although Raffles and Bunny have repeatedly shown that they are an unbreakable team, Bunny is excited for the chance to show in A Bad Night that he can function independently. When Bunny tells the story of a time when Raffles' pride got the best of him and put him in a well-prepared trap, he remembers both his partner's good and bad attributes.
A Thief in the Night by E.W. Hornung is a fascinating and entertaining collection of the exploits of the two legendary thieves, told via the hilarious and thoughtful narration of Bunny.

About Author

E. W. Hornung

Author and poet Ernest William Hornung was born on June 7, 1866, in Marton, Middlesbrough. Hornung was given the nickname Willie at a young age. The A. J. Raffles series of tales, which center on a gentleman burglar in late 19th-century London, is what made him most famous. His friends Lord Alfred Douglas and Oscar Wilde, as well as Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson, served as inspiration for several of the characters. In 1898, he published "In the Chains of Crime," which introduced Bunny Manders and Raffles. In 1899, the collection of Raffles' short stories was published as a book for sale. In addition to his Raffles tales, Hornung was a prolific fiction author who produced a large number of works between 1890 and 1914. He wrote a lot when he was in France; his son, Oscar, was killed at the Second Battle of Ypres in July 1915. The strain of his wartime duties significantly deteriorated Hornung's already poor constitution. On the train, he had a chill that developed into influenza and pneumonia, which led to his death on March 22, 1921, at the age of 54. In the south of France, in Saint-Jean-de-Luz, he was laid to rest.
